I usually use the "minimal busybox target skeleton" and busybox from
trunk (1.5.0 may work too, didn't try it, though). I use gcc-4.2 from
the branch (4.1.2 is supposed to work too) and current binutils.

Since you didn't paste any error, let me point you to
for further information on how to configure busybox, uClibc and a
kernel yourself.
