Yes, I'm worried about regressions.   __FAVOR_BSD is still used in the


and deals with the differences in which signals and long jmps were
handled in older BSD.  I don't know buildroot that well, but if you grep
the tree, will it show where __FAVOR_BSD is used?  Or does it (like
gentoo's portage) pull in source code as it builds.  I assume the latter
so grepping is probably insufficient.
