[PATCH] ref-manual: add EXCLUDE_PACKAGES_FROM_SHLIBS description
(too old to reply)

Some packages containing shared libraries might be registered as shlib
providers when they shouldn't (for example, the lib is for their private use
and must not generate any dependency).

EXCLUDE_FROM_SHLIBS is targeted at that, but it could be set for entire
recipe
only.

Variable EXCLUDE_PACKAGES_FROM_SHLIBS allows to set list of packages
that are
not candidates for shlib providers.

Variable documentation is pulled in from:
http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/poky/tree/meta/conf/documentation.conf

Notably, EXCLUDE_PACKAGES_FROM_SHLIBS is not defined there, which is why it
is not in the generated docs.
