See the BR2_PACKAGE_GCC_TARGET option, which allows to enable toolchain
in the target.

However, remember that Buildroot is a *cross-compilation* build system:
its purpose is to cross-compile libraries and programs for the target.
Therefore, the target toolchain (which allows to do native compilation
on the target) is not that widely used, and therefore not that widely
