No need to indicate "Project home:", just:
1) Did you check that it builds fine with uClibc? This kind of library
tend to use some funky C library features, sometimes not available in
2) The libunwind code seems to contain some architecture-specific
code. While aarch64, arm, mips, ppc, sh, x86 and x86-64 are supported,
some other architectures that Buildroot supports are not supported. So
maybe this package should have a "depends on BR2_aarch64 || BR2_arm ||
BR2_armeb || ..."
