Subject: Re: Re: [dev] [ANN] sabotage 2011-04-09, a musl+busybox based distribution

Slpm is probably much simpler than any ports system out there. It still needs some love..But it works for my use cases.

I recommend you to take a look on it. :)

I already packaged musl, tcc and other stuff in slpm

Gnite. Tomorrow ill give a try to the hacks you talk about.

Having x11 and gtk3 compiled statically can be a great benchmarking point to proove that statically compiled distros can beat dynamic ones.
