It is currently setting stuff under toolchain/external-toolchain/Config.in.2

Yep, seems like what I shall do is add the options
BR2_LOCALE, BR2_USE_WCHAR and BR2_INSTALL_LIBSTDCPP.

Quick question, currently toolchain/external-toolchain/Config.in.2 is setting BR2_GCC_CROSS_CXX which means build a working C++ compiler (in buildroot toolchain case) or I have a  working C++ compiler (in external toolchain usecase).  So should this be changed to BR2_INSTALL_LIBSTDCPP as we seem to be using this second option to dictate whether some packages can be built (qt/icu etc) or should we instead be checking against BR2_GCC_CROSS_CXX in the packages that require C++ compiler support

Cheers
Dan
