BusyBox

http://www.busybox.net/
Set of common utilities built as single binary

BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilites into a single small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for most of the utlities you usually find in GNU coreutils.

The utilites in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins.

This package is widely used for rescue and embedded systems. It also provides more compact alternatives to other common utilities such as bzip2, dhcp, diffutils, e2fsprogs, file, findutils, gawk, grep, inetutils, less, modutils, net-tools, procps, sed, shadow, sysklogd, sysvinit, tar, util-linux, and vim.
