Yes, true.

Well, the case for my patch is that it allows to produce a meson
cross-compilation.conf that has correct and usable values at the end of
the build.

For sysconfig, I have a pending patch that I will submit soon to fix
the problem. It is in fact worse for sysconfig because if you don't
tweak it during the build, the build simply fails. While for the global
meson cross-compilation.conf, it is less dramatic as it is not used by
Buildroot itself, just provided as a convenience.
