extracted either from Fedora src.rpm package,
from mailing list or from Suse website and not easily available as

Well, not very minimal yet. I did this package to test with wireshark
that Baruch is now working
on.
But I will do a separate buildroot build with minimal uClibc conf and
see what happens.
