Generally speaking, I am not a big fan of things exported in the
environment. One thing I very often do when debugging build issues is
copy/paste the command line that Buildroot ran, to run it again on my
own, sometimes doing additional tweaks. When there's more and more
stuff "hidden" (i.e exported in the environment), it makes that more
and more difficult.

In addition, as you can see here, the TARGET_CFLAGS we use are *NOT*
the global TARGET_CFLAGS that Buildroot defines. It's LUAROCKS_CFLAGS,
which is TARGET_CFLAGS + a few additional luarocks specific CFLAGS.

So no, exporting TARGET_CFLAGS globally doesn't solve that particularly
