I've been using Busybox with LFSfor a while and more recently with

I originally tried building Busybox early in Ch.6 instead of
Coreutils/Findutils etc but found that varios package's used obsure
command options for various utilities that Busybox's versions did now at the end of Ch. 6 I build Busybox to replace stock
sed/find/init/etc with the smaller alternatives.
