I did with good success .... The only missing things which i found
from me temporary debian root was e2fsprogs, findutils, login.
I compiled those three and found pam missing.
Pam doesnt compile as module_userd needs DBM which is (no expert)
is from glibc 2.1 which we havnt got - 2 Solutions.
Let out module_userdb (Which will be the first step) and provide
a solution based on gdbm (Which doesnt work as good as i thought)
