The only reason I put these is was because the busybox 0.60.5 used one of them.

Sounds good - that will fix #1.

Its basically to remove the dependancy that wget exists. Someone may have removed this and I did want to put it as a dependancy since it realy didn't get used. The portage system will downloads the files from the SRC_URI.

This is great. I was looking for the way to remove interactivity ;-).

Gentoo creates a image before the install at ${D} /var/tmp/portage/uclibc-buildroot-0.9.23/image and this is forced to be empty at the start of src_install. I've sort of got to copy from staging_dir to ${D} which is a bit of a waste of space and time. More makefile hacking to fix this.

I've got that as a symlink like: /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-uclibc/0.9.23 -> /usr/i386-uclibc/lib The gcc-config (gentoo wrapper gcc/g++ that maps to specific compilers) looked for something in /usr/lib/... so I just symlinked an that seems to work. I need to verify this later. The linux/nls.h and the zutil.h are the standard kernel headers. I found a zutil.h in toolchain_build_$(ARCH)/gcc-3.3.2/zlib/zutil.h have you modified this one?

If you're cross compiling isn't this the desired behaviour? Yes I do need to somehow handle different kernel versions somehow - will think about later. I'm not sure totaly what you're refering to here but I will look into it a bit. I'm intested in incorportating your fixed files along the etdyn and propolice(?) patches ones that Ned is also trying to get off you.

Ok will incorporate this. A locale config would be the same right? or is there some other weird dependancy.
