If you have an existing config, then buildroot will copy that
to the linux directory, and neither menuconfig or xconfig
will be launched.

It is launched if buildroot does not find a suitable config.

If you select to do make menuconfig, it will not launch  xconfig.

If you already have a .config, then you should do make linux-config
or similar.
