Can confirm the issue. Will try to create a reproduction guideline and a patch.

The missing dependency can be confirmed after a 'make distclean' and installing + selecting all packages.
Fluxbox will fail on the first run, but compile on the next runs, as then all headers are installed.

You can use a new clean checkout in a different directory to leave your normal working copy untouched.

To reproduce with an existing working copy clean up the following way:

#backup dl directory to save download time, clean everything and restore dl directory
mv dl dl_save
make distclean ; echo -e '\a'   #ring the bell when done
mv dl_save dl

Here continue with a new checkout or the cleaned up working copy.
IGNORE_ERRORS=m is necessary as some other packages before fluxbox could fail, e.g. CLASSPATH (missing some prerequisites here).

rm .config

#get latest trunk to be on par with package checkout
svn up
scripts/feeds update packages luci

#install packages
scripts/feeds install -a

#select packages
make menuconfig
     --> Target System: Marvel Orion (ARM, Kernel 2.6.28)
     --> Target Images: SquashFS image (default)
     --> Global build settings: Select all packages by default

script -f -c 'make V=99 IGNORE_ERRORS=m' compile_`svnversion`_`date +%Y%m%d_%H%M%S`_distclean.log ; echo -e '\a'

Attached is a patch to fix the current fluxbox makefile.
Please apply, test and commit to the repository.

Build Environment: Debian 5.0

Re-tested the patch and with this dependency fluxbox compiles on a clean checkout or after a 'make distclean' with all packages selected.
