I should just point out that my build system is a Gentoo64 server via 
SSH, my desktop is usually Windows. I'd much prefer to use X myself but 
don't relay have a choice.

As a newbie here I tend to need as much help as I can get! When the 
build crashed and complained about QT missing I thought I'd accidentally 
added some X package into buildroot, it was only after a few hours of 
doing step by step builds that I figured out it must have been running 
xconfig rather than menuconfig. Once I disabled the kernel it compiled 
first go, which is still a lot further than I got when I first tried 
buildroot a few months ago!

Keep up the good work guys!
