to quote guitarlynn from leaf-devel list
"Although I came up with a copy of upx-1.11 from the uClibc build-tool I have
also tried the beta version of upx available at their SF site. Upx-1.90 (beta)
also works compressing a LEAF kernel and gets slightly better compression.
The only issue is that you *must* use the "force" option (-f) for it to work
unlike the upx-1.11 version."
