Which version of uClibc are you using? What command do you use to
compile hostapd? I have compiled hostapd successfully to number of
different targets, including i386-uclibc, by just running something like
'make CC=path_to/i386-linux-uclibc'.

Do you have strace on your target? That might provide another viewpoint
at what is failing. I'm assuming that hostapd does not print out
anything useful even with full debugging enabled (-ddd on command line).
