Bug#211457: busybox-cvs-udeb: should be built with CONFIG_FEATURE_WGET_STATUSBAR

Package: busybox-cvs-udeb
Version: 0.60.99.cvs20030819 (not installed)
Severity: normal
Tags: patch d-i

busybox-cvs-udeb should be built with CONFIG_FEATURE_WGET_STATUSBAR.

1) It is very useful during large downloads (or on slow links) to
   display some kind of progress information to the user. Parts of d-i
   already make use of the progress information wget outputs.
2) debootstrap expects wget to output progress information, and regards
   the download as failed unless "100%" is ever outputted. This causes
   it to output erroneous warnings, as well as retry each download three
   times. (See bug #211111)

The included patch enables this for the -udeb target, but not for
-net-udeb and not for -deb.

I have not done extensive checking, but it appears most places in d-i
already gives -q to wget whenever it's supposed to be quiet, and
pkgdetails (from base-installer) should be able to parse the progress
output busybox wget prints.
