I'll have a closer look at this, but I think yes.

Depends whether you're talking about glibc support in toolchains
generated by Buildroot, or glibc support for external toolchains,
generated with external tools (crosstool-ng, etc.) or downloaded from
third parties (Codesourcery, vendor, etc.). The former is not supported
by Buildroot at this time. The latter is supported, and the
toolchain/external-toolchain/ext-tool.mk implements a uclibc: target,
regardless of whether the C library of the external toolchain is uclibc
or glibc.
