Oh, I fixed this in my tree at work I'm pretty sure, but obviously forgot 
to send in a patch. mkfs.ubifs is included in mtd-utils now, but you have 
to use the git version (it's not in an mtd-utils release).

I haven't kept up with official buildroot lately, especially since the
switch to git. I'll see if I can send a patch to the mailing list
tomorrow.. I can't get to my code right now.
