Well, that's not even the error I'm trying to solve. In fact, I'm trying
to solve this:

    $ cat defconfig
    BR2_arm=y
    BR2_TOOLCHAIN_BUILDROOT_EGLIBC=y
    BR2_PACKAGE_LIBFSLCODEC=y
    $ make BR2_DEFCONFIG=$(pwd)/defconfig defconfig
    $ make legal-info
    [--SNIP--]
    cat: /home/ymorin/dev/buildroot/O/build/libfslcodec-3.5.7-1.0.0/EULA: No
    such file or directory

Indeed. I was a bit too fast at writing the commit log (it happens quite
often these days, I must be moire careful.) Sorry.

So do I.

OK, will rephrase.

Will fix that and the others.

OK, thank you! :-)
