Well I'll be damned - I just subscribed to the list 5 mins ago, to offer up my work getting the 3.36 version of bluez added to buildroot. It seems the gumstix guys have 2.24.

3.36 *requires* dbus (and therefore either expat or libxml), 2.24 does not. The 2.x releases are no longer supported. 3.x is in maintenance mode. 4.x is active (and also requires dbus), though they say 3.x is still the most common.

If you want me to submit my stuff, just let me know what format you would like it in and where to send it - I am new here remember :)

I've tested my builds on an ARM926-EJS with a CSR BlueCore4 BT device using BCSP transport.
