Yes, the busybox shipped with udpcast is indeed statically linked. A 
dynamic version does not work, unless you also include glibc into your 

If for whatever reason you want to compile your own busybox, you can 
start with the patch at http://udpcast.linux.lu/20060619/busybox.diff.gz 
. This contains not only the changes to integrate udpcast and lzop into 
busybox, but also two configuration files config.mini and config.maxi, 
which specify all configuration choices, including static compilation.
