Buildroot does not support removing packages from the build_<arch>/root
directory, so you have to do it manually or rebuild from scratch.

It would be good if the makefile fragments in packages supported
removing the stuff installed by previous builds.

Even better if binary rpms could be created, and used to build the root directory.
