I had a similar problem and finally saw
the error messages and resolved it by adding texinfo. That module is
specified on the buildroot page of the wiki but not on the Buildroot_on_Windows
section the describes the setup for the VMWare that I am
Also I noticed that you've included
binutils-126.96.36.199.6 which, it is suggested on the Buildroot_on_Windows page but
not on the main buildroot page, is
"default binutils 2.17 is not
supported, change binutils version to 2.16.1 ..."
In the make menuconfig you can see that binutils
post 2.16 is labeled EXPERIMENTAL.
Since there is conflicting information or at
least non mention of the binutils version requirements, I went for
2.16 and have had no problems related to buildroot.
