+Supported architectures:
+ Busybox in general will build on any architecture supported by gcc. It has
+ a few specialized features added for __sparc__ and __alpha__. insmod
+ functionality is currently limited to x86, ARM, and SH3/4.
+Supported libcs:
+ glibc-2.0.x, glibc-2.1.x, Linux-libc5, uClibc. People are looking at
+ newlib and diet-libc, but consider them unsupported, untested, or worse.
+Supported kernels:
+ Full functionality requires Linux 2.0.x, 2.2.x, or 2.4.x. A large fraction
+ of the code should run on just about anything.
