[Buildroot] Feedback ?

I would like this patch as I have a number of packages that have this change added also (but on a package by package patch).

I am slightly afraid to just throw it into buildroot.  
If anyone has any feedback on this, that would be appreciated before I submit the change into buildroot as I think this is a good change.

Many thanks 
Daniel Laird

May I have some feedback on this patch ? Without this, Buildroot is
just unusable here.
