No, if you want to use buildroot, use buildroot (or openbricks, or
yocto, or OE). Debian/Ubuntu are binary distros and there is no mileage in
trying to occupy that space when other distros already do it well.
Making it relatively painless to rebuild or cross-rebuild your
package-set debian-style is a useful goal, but not supporting loads of
different package config options - that is something a source-based
distro can do so much better.
We do plan to support minimal builds for bootstrapping purposes which
might be useful in this regard, but that's not really what it's for.
Principal hats: Linaro, Emdebian, Wookware, Balloonboard, ARM
