What about adding seomthing like:

ifdef UCLIB
      BT_SITE="... uclib ..."
      BT_SITE="... xensource ..."

then have a buildroot-snapshot in xensource somewhere, this allows easy
testing or the upstream snapshots make vs make UCLIB=1, and brace users
automagically end up with a working buildroot if they trying to build
there own ramdisks.
