What is the output of

dpkg -l e2fsprogs

If it is not installed, install it before compiling busybox. You can install
all the necessary dependencies by doing

apt-get build-dep busybox

FWIW, I am able to compile busybox from source without any problems on
Debian Etch, using

apt-get source busybox
apt-get build-dep busybox
cd usybox-1.1.3/; dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot
