Thanks. Unfortunately, it doesn't build with a minimal uClibc ARM
toolchain, apparently because dpkg doesn't recognize the
linux-uclibcgnueabi tuple fragment as a valid operating system. I get:

checking for posix_fadvise... yes
checking dpkg cpu type... arm
configure: WARNING: arm not found in cputable
checking dpkg operating system type... linux-uclibcgnueabi
configure: WARNING: linux-uclibcgnueabi not found in ostable
checking dpkg architecture name... configure: error: cannot determine host dpkg architecture
make: *** [/home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/build/dpkg-1.16.10/.stamp_configured] Erreur 1

Could you have a look?
