i started to buy a Gumstix but then decided to buy some NSLU2s/Lofts instead

gumstix just copies their buildroot env from the original one that was spawned 
from uclibc:
they include their own fixes on top of it i imagine

i have commit access to the original buildroot and ive added portage to that 
back when i was using buildroot to bootstrap Gentoo/embedded ... but since 
Gentoo can be used to bootstrap Gentoo/embedded, i dont really bother with 
buildroot anymore

considering Gumstix is simply a little endian arm, there's no reason you cant 
take existing little endian arm stages and use those on the board ... you'd 
prob still have to get your kernel from them though
