you are probably missing code in your makefile(s) for installing your
package. You need to copy the executable to the target root filesystem
somehow, otherwise it will not show up in the target system.
Usually this code is placed in the project's makefile  and executed
by the buildroot environment, but you could also place instructions
directly into your buildroot .mk file.
For a quick-and-dirty solution you might check existing packages  for
examples what could be done. For a reference I would recommend section
17.5 of the buildroot manual .
 It should have a section to handle the 'make install' command.
 E.g. package/b43-firmware, package/tcping
