Addition of busybox 1.2.1 as a mindi-busybox new package
This should avoid delivering binary files in mindi not built there (Fedora and Debian are quite serious about that)

3<h3>BusyBox: The Swiss Army Knife of Embedded Linux</h3>
4
5<p>BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single
6small executable. It provides replacements for most of the utilities you
7usually find in GNU fileutils, shellutils, etc. The utilities in BusyBox
8generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins; however,
9the options that are included provide the expected functionality and behave
10very much like their GNU counterparts.  BusyBox provides a fairly complete
11environment for any small or embedded system.</p>
12
13<p>BusyBox has been written with size-optimization and limited resources in
14mind. It is also extremely modular so you can easily include or exclude
15commands (or features) at compile time. This makes it easy to customize
16your embedded systems. To create a working system, just add some device
17nodes in /dev, a few configuration files in /etc, and a Linux kernel.</p>
