I have busybox 1.2 building under ELDK 4.0, and didn't mess at all with
the Make system, and am building for a ppc_6xx- target.  I realize this
isn't quite your setup, but is pretty close.

As long as you have the tools listed in your PATH (in my
case /opt/tools/eldk4.0/usr/bin:/opt/tools/eldk4.0/bin), you should be
able to build fine using 'make menuconfig'.  Just go to 'Busybox
Settings->Build Options' and select 'Do you want to build BusyBox with a
Cross Compiler?', in your case entering 'ppc_8xx-' or whatever the
prefix is for your CPU.
