Busybox and uclibc copied all that verbatim from the linux kernel.  (I can 
barely get curses to work under linux, trying it under windows frightens me

If you've been following the miniconfig stuff, under busybox you can currently 
do an allnoconfig, append a miniconfig to .config, and then do:
yes "" | make oldconfig

Eventually we'll upgrade to the new kernel stuff that supports allno.config, 
but that's a 1.2 issue...

Steve Ballmer: Innovation!  Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word.
I do not think it means what you think it means.
