Please see section 3.7.2. Rebuilding Target Packages in the manual,

Please note that it's very likely that you will  have  to  ajust  the
spec file for the package you are trying to add to make it build in a
cross-development environment.

Also be aware that it is very likely that GMediaServer  will  have  a
pretty  extensive list of both build and runtime dependencies, so you
might quickly find yourself in a maze of other packages you  have  to
build first.

It may turn out to be more efficient  to  build  such  stuff  in  the
native  environment  on the target, evenif build times there are much

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
