Well, they shouldn't as make complains that it doesn't know how to make
the rule, but I don't get why.

Does it work if you change the %_defconfig to atngw100-base_defconfig ?

 Mark> No ... everything comes up "no rule to make".

 Mark> 2009.08 release of buildroot ?  It's not out yet is it ?

Ehh, yes it is. We're no longer in August ;)
