Summary:                    buildroot jail unable to compile busybox ---
"missing" output directory
Description: 
Background: I am attempting to use buildroot as a root jail for making
components to be linked against uClibc. For the jail, I am using an
unwrapped copy of the ext2 target file system as produced by buildroot.

Symptom: I am attempting to rebuild busybox inside the jail with my own
setting. Unfortunately, "make menuconfig" (or just "make" with a planted
.config) fails with the following ominous error:

/tmp/busybox $ make
Makefile:72: *** output directory "/tmp/busybox" does not exist.  Stop.

The listed output directory does exist (relative to chroot) as I am
currently in it. Disabling the check in the makefile results in a segfault
instead--- so
I would guess that the "missing" output directory is just a symptom of
something more sinister going on.

Tried the same trick on a plain vanilla Debian 3.1r1. Same result (i.e. I
get a toolchain that does not compile busybox). 

Will now try to reproduce the toolchain using the busybox/uClibc snapshots
that were used for the "preassembled" i386 toolchain (basically, a sanity
check). Will update once I have some results.

Any update on this?
busybox now has approached 1.3.0 and buildroot recently received quite
some changes, so please retest.

Assumed to be fixed with current setups.
