Android prebuilt toolchain does not work with busybox

 Dear all:

I am a newbie in the Kernel land.  I would like to use the prebuilt
toolchain included in the Android release to build BUSYBOX.  I have
lots of compilation error, and I need help.

I understand that I could use CodeSourcery toolchain to build the
busybox, and create a rootfs for the kernel.

Do you think it makes sense to carry two different tool sets, and
switch it back and forward during the development?
Also, is it safe to do this if a new toolchain is being released?

I am a bit confused, and need help badly.

 I case a static build of busybox is good enough for you, you can
follow this tutorial: 
 http://wiki.androidx86.org/index.php?title=Installing_BusyBox 
With the tool chain questions I can't help you...

 I think this has something to do with BusyBox being dependent on libc,
which Android's toolchain doesn't have.

1. Eclipse Layout editor and Java 6

System config is MacOSX with default JDK 1.5.0_16. Eclipse 3.4
The problem is - I have a project in workspace that has been developed
under JDK 1.6 . I don't really want to switch back to 1.5 ( i' would
have to clean up a LOT of @Override ) but if i work with this project,
after couple of rebuilds - eclipse layout editor not able to display
preview.
Work around i found so far - open android project that is in
compliance with Java 1.5. Close everything else and rebuild workspace.
But it's kind of annoying to do it every time. ( or
http://www.anddev.org/viewtopic.php?p=11577#11642 )
I just wonder if anybody found better solution.

Alex.
