Not sure whether this is the cause of your problem, but please note that
Buildroot currently requires host gcc version 4.8 or newer:

  https://buildroot.org/downloads/manual/manual.html#requirement-mandatory

Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) comes with gcc 4.4. So unless you installed a newer
gcc version, you are likely to hit many other build issues, especially
with host (native) packages.
