I know this is not directly what you asked for, but do you know about the
crosstool-ng project? It builds both glibc/uClibc based toolchains for
several architectures. I successfully built an ARM toolchain with it a
couple of months ago. Project website:

I have not tested it myself, but I guess it should be ok to setup Buildroot
to use a crosstool-ng generated external toolchain.
