No need to indicate "Project home:", just:

	  http://www.nongnu.org/libunwind/index.html

Also:

 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
 uClibc.

 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 || ..."

Best regards,

Thomas
