It seems the cmake toolchain file generated by buildroot uses "FORCE" to set
the CXX and C flags. However, this can be a problem. The toolchain file is read
every run of cmake, so the CXX flags keep growing. This results in a complete
rebuild everytime something changes in a CMakeLists.txt. CMake correctly thinks
that it must rebuild everything because the CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS must be applied to
all which you are compiling. It can be solved by removing the FORCE attribute
of the set() command. The same goes for the CMAKE_C_FLAGS.
