[Buildroot] Migrating from buildroot-2016-08 to -2018-02

Hello everyone,

I just tried to replace our buildroot-2016-08 environment with
buildroot-2018-02 and run into a small problem.

Usually I tried to create a new out-of-Tree, out-of-Source build using:
"make BR2_EXTERNAL=../ O=../../beaglebone_build beaglebone_defconfig" from
the buildroot main directory, which did create the directory
"beaglebone_build" and took care of the configuration.

Now I am kind of stuck, I did create the external.desc file with a name
inside "beaglebon_build" and created a Config.in and external.mk file there
since this is not handled like back with 2016.08.
So if I change into my build folder "beaglebone_build" I cannot run "make
menuconfig" since it does come back with an "make: *** No rule to make
target 'menuconfig'.  Stop.".

I do question if my old way of starting a out-of-Tree, out-of-Source build
is still recommended?

Best regards,
