Interesting suggestion!  From my latest chapter 5 build, that would
shave 9.5 minutes off of the 74 minute build time (~13%).  Assuming that
it takes less than 9.5 minutes to build busybox, then it's an obvious
time-saver, and reduces the potential for errors considerably by
removing so many packages.

The only concern I would have is whether or not the use of busybox will
alter the results of any configure scripts.  Assuming testing shows it
doesn't, then I've no objections at all to a mockup with a view to
getting this merged relatively quickly.

Thanks!

Matt.
