Ok, so the problem was that you used the uclibc 0.9.30 config with
uclibc 0.9.31.

JFFS2 on compact flash? That doesn't sound right. JFFS2 is meant to be
used on raw flash, not on
flash-with-a-microcontroller-pretending-to-be-a-disk like a compact
flash card is.

The mails about mtd problems was with the new busybox applets, not the
normal mtd package.

Please send some more info if you still have problems building it
(busybox .config, exact error message).
