From: "Yann E. MORIN" <>

Te crosstool-NG backend is deprecated.

Let it live one more cycle before we kill it for good, since the internal
backend has now gained the ability to build toolchains based on the three
C libraries that matter: uClibc, glibc and eglibc.

People that still want to use a crosstool-NG-built toolchain can do so
outside of Buildroot, and use the resulting toolchain with the external
toolchain backend.
