Ok, it actually took a lot of doing to get a baseconfig-busybox that
would actually build Linux From Scratch and didn't have OBVIOUS missing
things (like vi and shell history) when I pulled up a shell prompt.

CONFIG_FEATURE_NON_POSIX_CP which is frankly disgusting so I fixed the
build scripts instead.  (It's the symlinks into a read only filesystem
thing, breaking symlinks makes that work, but isn't how posix says CP
should work so not how I plan to implement toybox... it's a thing.)
