The simplest solution is to use an external toolchain. I already used a
Codesource glibc-based toolchain with Buildroot, and it worked nicely.
The only needed modification were :

 * Modifications to get external toolchains to work (I have sent a
   patch recently for this)

 * Specifying the proper values for the BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_LIB_C and
   BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_LIBS configuration variables.

If you want to *generate* a glibc-toolchain with Buildroot, it is
probably going to be a more tedious work. But if you happen to do that,
please submit patches!
