IIRC, The way saveconfig works is that it copies the current
$(TOPDIR)/.config to the loacl/$(PROJECT) directory
and then edits the paths for certain variables.

It does not modify the $(TOPDIR)/.config file,so you
will still be using the same paths.

If you want to use the new board stuff, you have to to

$ make BOARD=MYPROJECT getconfig 

which do:

cp $(LOCAL)/$(PROJECT)/$(PROJECT).config .config

and after that, you should be using the BOARD files.

Note that you can set BUILDROOT_LOCAL to whatever in 
your shell environment so you can store your project
files outside the buildroot source tree.
