I am well aware that you can create your own configuration.

It was on before, allowing packages to build.
You changed that to off.
You did that change to make sure something happen.
I cannot think of any other think, than you *INTENTIONALLY*
wanted the *default* operation of buildroot was to break all 
the build of all packages which contained LEGACY stuff.

The fact that it is possible to configure buildroot
to fix this, does not change the default operation.

If that was not your intention, then what ?
