That is:

You have to add a file local.mk to your project.  This file should contain the
following definition:

Again, may I suggest "wherever.your.source.lives" rather than
"wherever.you.source.lives".

 Frequently Asked Questions
 ==========================
 
+How can I use sources from my local PC instead of the official tarball?
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+Just use the "Source Directory Override" mechanism.
+
+You have to add a file local.mk to you project with the following
+definition within:
+
+<package>_OVERRIDE_SRCDIR = wherever.you.source.lives
+
+Then announce this file to buildroot in the "Build options" menu as
+"location of a package override file".
+
 The boot hangs after 'Starting network...'
