The attached passes busybox's cut tests, and all of toybox's cut tests except
the one that essentially does:

  $ echo potatosalad | cut --output-delimiter x -b 1-3,2-5,7-9,9-10

In part because I only implemented -O and not --output-delimiter because I don't
remember how to make busybox's --longopt parsing work.

Also, I dunno how you prefer to suppress the "a string constant that will
segfault if you try to write to it doesn't have the const annotation and thus
assigning it to a const char * complains" warnings. Me, I rip every occurrence
of "const" out of my code because the compiler is ALREADY doing liveness
analysis and "stored in rodata" is apparently not enough for it to be const.
(What, spray it down with gratuitous typecasts? Or is there a less ugly way?)

I implemented -O because -DF implies --output-delimiter since the input
delimiter and the output delimiter don't match, so it's only polite to let them
override it. The default output delimiter is "a single space" because if you
just output whatever the regex matched you get inconsistent output from
inconsistent input, ala:

echo "one   two three         four" | cut -DF 2-4

which would behave differently from cut -DF 2,3,4 and "what would awk do"
implies single space, so that's what I implemented.

I haven't bloatchecked the code, I merely got it working. *shrug* First stab at
it. Sorry for the delay, my todo list runneth over...
