Thought about that. In essence to fully comply one would have to provide the entire machine as a snapshot. sort of silly.

Went with: The full build folders and be damned
That is a subject that has received a lot of attention on the Buildroot project mailing lists.
There has even been some efforts made to automate the process of GPL compliance in Buildroot.

But some of the commercial contractors using Buildroot have decided the same as yourself:
Tar-Ball the entire mess (exclusive of their proprietary, locally added, parts), drop it on the world and "be done with it".
Let "the world" sort it all out.
