I believe it's typically the kind of customization that is left to the
user, through a post-build script. Buildroot provides a relatively sane
default installation, and the user has to further tweak it if needed. I
don't think we should make Buildroot more complex to allow directly in
the Buildroot configuration this kind of very specific customization.
