bug - will search out a good list of mirrors /url for it.

Thankyou - reassuring to get a similar list. If anyone constanly gets a asm 
operand error I have had it fairly constantly. Will post more if I work it

Once baselayout-lite gets going a bit more I'll get rid of most of these. 
There is some benefit to keeping this self contained.

I haven't tried lots of permutations so thankyou. I will look at stripflag to 
see how/if it can be used on configurations.

All for it.

I haven't tried compiling uclibc-buildroot with uclibc. Once its a bit more 
tested a virtual would be applicable.

I've removed the PROVIDE virtual for the time being. A few people reported 
breakages because of it.
