No need for busybox sed modifications...

We could use busybox awk **if** it is supporting ARGC, ARGV.
We could imagine the process reading the file in RAM, then
performing the changes, and writing in place.

The use of ARGC/ARGV could help passing general replacement
(in a few locations).

We already removed perl from uclibc compilation. I vouch for
removing perl from buildroot too !

I need to put my hands on busybox and look for ARGC/ARGV...
:( no time....
