We too used NM for configuring network interfaces on our embedded
board. We had to cross-compile NM from source though it wasn't very
straightforward as NM had a lot of dependencies. We also had to change
some code to make it detect the ethernet interface on our board.

Communication was done over dbus using QtDbus.
