Do you mean a minimal .config (a defconfig) file? Upstream busybox
unfortunately doesn't support that.

If you just mean how to save your full busybox .config after you changed
it with 'make busybox-menuconfig', then you can just copy
out/build/busybox-*/.config to somewhere
(board/vendor/product/busybox.config is a common location) and
then change your buildroot BR2_PACKAGE_BUSYBOX_CONFIG option to point to

Also see section 3.3.2 and 3.3.3 in the user manual:
