In the first I was also a little bit unhappy with this advertising of
deprecation for crosstool-NG support inside buildroot. But in the end it
is really much easier to include a external toolchain into buildroot
then keep the crosstool-NG backend running. And, as Yann wrote, it saves
a lot of time while collecting things. :-)

I pushed my current used ARM1176 Toolchain config to github and wrote
(mostly for me) some lines how to use.

The resulting archive can be used as external toolchain inside buildroot
(as local file or via http URL).
