Unfortunately, the following defconfig doesn't build here:

BR2_arm=y
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL=y
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_CUSTOM=y
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_DOWNLOAD=y
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_URL="http://autobuild.buildroot.org/toolchains/tarballs/br-arm-full-2019.02-rc1.tar.bz2"
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_GCC_4_9=y
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_HEADERS_4_14=y
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_LOCALE=y
# BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_HAS_THREADS_DEBUG is not set
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_CXX=y
BR2_INIT_NONE=y
BR2_SYSTEM_BIN_SH_NONE=y
# BR2_PACKAGE_BUSYBOX is not set
BR2_PACKAGE_LIBGLIB2=y
# BR2_TARGET_ROOTFS_TAR is not set

It fails with:

So, apparently, it's using the --add-symbol option of objcopy, which
doesn't exist in this ancient objcopy version:

$ objcopy --version
GNU objcopy (GNU Binutils for Debian) 2.22
