Greetings all,

Yet another update to the buildscripts.

Main changes
 o Option to skip bootstrap of second and subsequent gcc builds
 o Option to use coreutils instead of file/text/sh-utils
 o More intelligent check for devfs
 o MAKEDEV added if devfs not present
 o unpack_tarball cleans up existing directories before unpacking and
   passes back PKGDIR, the install directory of the tarball, for use
   in the rest of the script

Probably more, but thats all I can think of for the moment

Next few versions will be mainly removal of bash specific stuff and
incorporating some fixes from the iterative checks.

Comments/patches/additions all welcome...
