Exactly. The buildroot makefiles should work just fine with dash as
/bin/sh, but the build system of some of the packages (which doesn't use
the SHELL setting) might not.

This is ofcourse a bug in those upstream packages, but there's a chance
some have hit (as most people have/had bash as /bin/sh).
