Hrm, I've just tried it, but I can't get it to do anything. Could you
post a usage example? I'd be really interested in results for boot

BTW, there seems to be a problem with ld-linux.so.2. When using the
version reduced with mklibs.py, busybox wget crashes (segfault), but
not with the unreduced version. I think I'll try mklibs.sh next...
