1) Run 'make config' or 'make menuconfig' and select the
functionality that you wish to enable.
2) Run 'make dep'
3) Check the Makefile for any Makefile setting you wish
to adjust for your system (things like like setting
your cross compiler, adjusting optimizations, etc)
4) Run 'make'
5) Go get a drink of water, drink a soda, visit the bathroom,
or whatever while it compiles. It doesn't take very
long to compile, so you don't really need to waste too
much time waiting...
6) Run 'make install' or 'make PREFIX=/target install' to
install busybox and all the needed links. Some people
will prefer to install using hardlinks and will instead
want to run 'make install-hardlinks'....
