 Daniel> It seems that mkdosfs isn't generated, still I got no copile error..

Works here:

>>> dosfstools 3.0.16 Installing to target
test -z "mkdosfs" || install -m 755 /home/peko/source/buildroot/output/build/dosfstools-3.0.16/mkdosfs /home/peko/source/buildroot/output/target/sbin/
mkdir -p /home/peko/source/buildroot/output/target/etc

Could you please provide more details? What is your .config exactly?
Please run 'make savedefconfig' and paste the content of the 'defconfig'
