Well, for one thing, you appear to be trying to build uClibc with
(I'm assuming) a glibc-targeted mips-linux cross compiler.  We no
longer support that.  You need to build a uClibc-targeted toolchain.
See http://uclibc.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/toolchain/#dirlist for what we

But this is unlikely to cause your menuconfig problem.  I honestly
don't know what's causing that, as I can't duplicate it here.
