yes it is in sabotage.
take a look at the build script.
in case you want a more specific answer, provide more specifics (such as 
a buildlog).

btw, a much nicer terminal library than ncurses is available here:
this one is straightforward to use, supports UTF8 natively and adds only 
about 20KB to a static binary.
might be an option for heirloom.

no, after recent bughunt activities, busybox is now in a really good 
shape (builds entire sabotage with stock utils).
i see no reason to switch to something else.
