That's one option. Another option is to:

 (1) Use another make target, such as sdk-tarball, as you suggested

 (2) Use a stable name for the output, like
     output/images/buildroot-sdk.tar.gz. Indeed for no other Buildroot
     output we include the Git commit ID or the target tuple in the
     name of the file being generated.
