Since it is easy to change the makefile that is what I do as well.
I usually leave the top list of defaults commented out, then copy the
ones I want to the end. That can make the merges a bit easier.

Well you can copy your .config onto buildroot/sources/busybox.config.

It may be nice to postpend "$(CUSTOM_CONFIG)"
to all the lines like BUSYBOX_CONFIG:=$(SOURCE_DIR)/busybox.config
So it would be easy to keep a separate config file.
