I had the same problem trying to use the Ubuntu ARM cross-compiler.
Unfortunately, while it allows to go a bit further, it doesn't fix the fact
that the Ubuntu ARM cross-compiler is not a *pure* toolchain: it contains many
more libraries and utilities compiled for the target than a normal toolchain,
and this doesn't play well with build systems, including Buildroot.

For that reason, we do not support building with the Ubuntu ARM cross-compiler
at the moment. Either build your toolchain with Buildroot or Crosstool-NG, or
get a pre-compiled one from CodeSourcery (which offers pure toolchains).
