any of those tools, but you may do so if you want.
+brmake
+ a script that can be run instead of make, that prepends the date in
+ front of each line, redirects all of the build output to a file
+ ("'br.log' in the current directory), and just outputs the Buildroot
+ messages (those lines starting with >>>) on stdout.
+ Do not run this script for interactive configuration (e.g. menuconfig)
+ or on an unconfigured directory. The output is redirected so you will see
+ nothing.

check-package
a script that checks the coding style of a package's Config.in and
.mk files, and also tests them for various types of typoes.
