Thanks, I just did something similar in my own tree.

This is needed due to the ugly multiple MTD versions stuff, but it 
has the unfortunate side-effect of adding target binaries too - 
all the default MTD utilities.

One solution would be to duplicate the mtd-utils.git stuff within a
separate host-only mkfs.ubifs target. Either inside target/ubifsroot, or
in toolchain or whatever. That could be switched over to mtd-utils 1.x.0
when it's released.
