libxslt and libxml with Python
I got voxl-python_3.6.9 built and installed on voxl, and am working through pip installing some packages, pymavlink in particular. I see that a couple of libxml packages exist on VOXL, however there are none for libxslt, and opkg can't seem to find an xslt package (I've tried a bunch of combinations like libxslt, libxslt-dev, libxslt-devel, libxslt1, etc.). I also tried installing something like python3-lxml per google searches, but to no avail.
Is there a way around this, or a way I can point opkg to another repository that has the libxslt package? Thanks.
For reference, here is the output.

If you can use a Docker container for you application then you can run Ubuntu or Alpine and get access to a lot of packages. If you run on target without a container then you are much more limited in what you can do to resolve dependencies. opkg isn't like apt-get where you can point to large package repositories to find your missing dependencies. In this case you will likely have to build and install libxslt yourself.
