Not that I've known of... The website (http://www.buildroot.net/) says
LGPL and the parent git link actually points to LGPL v2.1
Acording to uclibc.org, the library is also under LGPL. But please
notice uClibc != buildroot

We share some infrastructure and perhaps some developers, but they are
different projects.
