Couple of minor points on the English (Still very impressive from a non 
native speaker)
p8: "Buildroot starts by the toolchain" should be "starts with the"
p16 "Any other project specific file" should perhaps be "files"
p17: "kernel and bootloaders often" shouldn't it be singular bootloader?
p17: "drawback is that Buildroot does directly" unless I misunderstand 
the use case, don't you mean doesn't?
p21: "I don't recommend this, ..." I'm not sure if you are not 
recommending changing the skeleton or using a script to modify it
p30: "finds automagically" should be "automagically finds"
p37: "assignements" should be assignments
p37: "allows to tell" should be "allows you to tell"

One thing I'd love to get written up somewhere is best practice for NFS 
mounting a filesystem image, but I realise this may not be relevant to 
your talk.

Otherwise your slides are very good at explaining how it all works.
