I've already prototyped something for that. I don't really like the
solution, but as you said, the Kconfig syntax is pretty limited, so I
haven't found any other solution than:


This works for me. You just do:

export BUILDROOT_EXTERNAL_BOARDS=/some/directory
make menuconfig
 # you see your external boards directly in the configuration

And that's it.

What do you think ?
