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:

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. Error installing android SDK on windows XP

I see following error:
"Failed to fetch URL 
https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml,
reason: HTTPS SSL error. You might want to force download through HTTP
in the settings."

I tried to play around with the settings, didnt help.

Whats the workaround?

2. Android SDK and AVD Manager

I just setup my development environment on a Windows XP VM and I'm
having problems getting the Android SDK & AVD Manager to retreive the
available packages. The message under Sites, Packages, and Archives
says "Failed to fetch URL". When I attempt to retrieve the 'Available
Packages', I get the following message:

XML verification failed for 
http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml.
Error: The markup declarations contained or pointed to by the document
type declaration must be well-formed.
Failed to fetch URL http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml,
reason: Unknown
Failed to parse XML document

I have the Windows firewall turned off, no antivirus software, and
have the "force https:// ...to be fetched using http://" checked. I've
also tried manually creating a file named 'androidtool.cfg' with the
text "sdkman.force.http=true".

Still getting the same error. Any ideas what to try next?
