FYI, I've changed sources.buildroot.net to simply do:

make -k \
 $(find package -name \*.mk|sed 's|.*/\([^/]*\)\.mk|\1-source host-\1-source|'

E.G. foo-source + host-foo-source for all .mk files under package. It
also doesn't cover everything (E.G. packages with version selection),
but it gets the host packages and doesn't need any changes to buildroot
