When you run +make legal-info+, Buildroot produces warnings in the +README+
file to inform you of relevant material that could not be saved.
+Finally, keep in mind that the output of +make legal-info+ is based on
+declarative statements in each of the packages recipes. The Buildroot
+developers try to do their best to keep those declarative statements as
+accurate as possible, to the best of their knowledge. However, it is very
+well possible that those declarative statements are not all fully accurate
+nor exhaustive. You (or your legal department) _have_ to check the output
+of +make legal-info+ before using it as your own compliance delivery. See
+the _NO WARRANTY_ clauses (clauses 11 and 12) in the +COPYING+ file at the
+root of the Buildroot distribution.
