Oh I see. This buildroot thingie is rather new to me, so I am gaining
experience on it.

So it not quite a bug then, it is an not-so-obvious feature which
one can tumble on it. :-)

Last but not least, I seem to only get all the wrong things with me now. 
I managed to compile the rootfs.i686.ext2, using a few different 
combinations of gcc ( 3.4.6, 4.1.0, 4.2.0 ), uclibc version (
and 0.9.29 ). But consistantly I get random segmentation violation 
error when I compile stuff inside the rootfs. Looks like stack 
corruption or something. Now perhaps I need to change my host 
OS compiler instead ( I am using 4.1.2 20061028 ). 

Anyone knows if the host compiler version will have an impact 
on the quality of the rootfs ?
