Ok, thanks. My approach has one drawback: when one selects uClibc, the
Kconfig system picks up the default uClibc values for
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_LIB_C and BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_LIBS. If the
user then later changes to glibc, then Kconfig doesn't change the
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_LIB_C and BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_LIBS : they are
kept to their uClibc defaults. That may confuse users.
This raises the following point: do we need these options at all ?
Can't we just hardcode in ext-took.mk the list of libraries that have
to be imported in the target, depending on the choosen C library ?
