The utilities need to scan through all directories and files on multiple filesystems - the more layer added to aufs, the worse it would be. Thus it needs any optimisation it can get.

Right now I managed to get it compiled with uclibc so at least the size problem is resolved in the interim, but I prefer to use musl if possible. cheers! James Content of type "text/html" skipped
