I built this the other day, its at http://people.debian.org/~bug1/busybox/
The size has blown out, but extra stuff included in busybox is ash and ip
(big applets) and also smaller applets logger, mkswap and swaponoff
hmm, busybox-unstable.deb with the same feature as 0.60.5-2 appears to
have increased in size by 20kB, maybe i translated the config incorrectly,
ill look into that.
