Not sure if this is the cause of your problem, but adding a relative
pathname to PATH doesn't seem like a good idea. Try
PATH=$(pwd)/../buildroot/build_armeb/staging_dir/bin:$PATH instead.

The various kernel makefiles under the targets directory are
instructive; I created a fairly generic linux kernel makefile based on
those. See the attached patch if you want to try it out for yourself.
