If you have a >160GB USB key. The problem is that "everything" also
includes all the older package versions, so you will be downloading way
too much to ever be useful. I'm not sure our mirror hosting would like
lots of people to grab all 160GB. We are currently at ~25GB/day as it is.

Sorry, there isn't. You can configure buildroot to the architecture you
need and then run make allyespackageconfig; make source to download the
default version of all packages available for that architecture, but it
will not handle packages with version selection or packages only
available on other architectures.
