Please, bear with me, because I would like to understand this and I am
very ignorant of this things. The first part about adding the definition
to the OptionalPackages file is clear.

I am not sure I understand the second part though; isn't the
AddOptionalHaikuImagePackages directive in UserBuildConfig what is used
to add any of the optional packages defined in the OptionalPackages file
to a build?

/me wonders if there is a tutorial on how to create and add an optional
package for Haiku...
