It gets built (for the host) because it's needed by the toolchain.

mpfr.org is down. We have a fallback system where it will then try to
download from buildroot.net instead if that fails - Unfortunately this
doesn't work because the patch file is simply called patches on
mpfr.org and we rename it after download to mpfr-2.4.1.patch after

I have fixed it by adding a patches -> mpfr-2.4.1.patch symlink on
buildroot.net - So it should work now.
