Busybox needs a modified Config.h, i havent tried it under the Hurd for
quite a while now and the way commands are called have changed a bit so
it may need some more changes. 

Any busybox features that dont work under the Hurd can just be turned
off. It does makes it less functional, but busybox can provide over a
hundred commands (if i remember correctly), and there werent that many
functions commands in busybox that were wanted (we dont want insmod and
friends) and didnt work.

Give me a week and ill start to look into it, i accidently wiped my Hurd
partition during an.. expirement, and im still tied up with other
busybox stuff.
