I also should have caught this in my testing. I now understand why
this happened: sources.buildroot.net also contains the tar file of the
package I tried in my testing, and I did not actually verify the build
output. Since the package was downloaded and the contents looked ok, I
assumed the git download wrapper was fine.
Very bad testing on my part, my apologies!
