[Buildroot] Build problem with buildroot config of Busybox?

I seem to have a knack for posting to the wrong list, but I think this 
is buildrot rather than BusyBox related.  Having applied Berhard's trick 
to get me past the uClibc build problems I've now hit another snag.  
Buildroot *seems* to be trying to build BusyBox for an i386 even though 
I specified PowerPC.  Is that right?  I may be misinterpreting the error 
messages (which I have included below).  I may have configured something 
incorrectly, but I thought  there was only one place to select the 
target architecture.

Any ideas as to how to approach this problem greatly appreciated.
