Well, I already have an install.sh script.  If I provide the busybox.links file
that is generated at compile time then this would work just fine.  Then I could
simply install /bin/busybox and /usr/bin/install_busybox.sh and then when you
go to install things you could simply run 

    /usr/bin/install_busybox.sh /mnt/target [--hardlinks]

and it would install busybox to the target directory with the required
directory tree and needed links.  Sure I can do this if you would prefer.
Sound agreeable?
