- Build a shared library libbusybox.so which contains all
- libraries used inside busybox.
+ Build a shared library libbusybox.so.N.N.N which contains all
+ busybox code.
- This is an experimental feature intended to support the upcoming
- "make standalone" mode. Enabling it against the one big busybox
- binary serves no purpose (and increases the size). You should
- almost certainly say "no" to this right now.
+ This feature allows every applet to be built as a tiny
+ separate executable. Enabling it for "one big busybox binary"
+ approach serves no purpose and increases code size.
+ You should almost certainly say "no" to this.
