Yes it's possible: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuzRsXKm_NQ

Buildrom is able to include the kernel, but it is unable to include the
X server inside the payload. LBDistro was able to do it, but it's
unmaintained since a couple of years so it may not work at all.

You can also take a look at my AVATT project, which is using buildroot
to help compiling userland programs. I modified buildrom to use images
generated by buildroot as payload. This should make very straightforward
including X or anything provided by buildroot inside the payload, with
the expense of some extra time(~30 minutes) spent on compiling the
toolchain, but only for the first time.

You can find my code at http://cristi.indefero.net/p/avatt/
