Create a recipe for libcec, a library to interact with HDMI devices. (potentially a hard task)

Haiku is a UNIX-like open source operating system that provides a tool called haikuporter to build 3rd party open source software.

A recipe in Haiku is a text file that the haikuporter tool reads in order to build open source software and create packages for it. The collection of recipes that may be built by haikuporter is called HaikuPorts.

If you are new to Haiku then you should probably start with these tasks:

The goal of this task is to write a recipe for libcec.

When combined with the right hardware, libCEC allows to control a device with a TV remote control, utilising the existing HDMI cabling.

You can find the sources on the project homepage: http://libcec.pulse-eight.com/

The recipe should be added to haikuports at haikuports/dev-libs/libcec/.

Important: please read the generic instructions for "recipe" tasks, as we have a lot of these: https://dev.haiku-os.org/wiki/GoogleCodeInTaskRecipe

Available time is only 4 days but it can be increased on request.
