After emerge sync , I ran emerge -up world , and noticed that a new package was going to be installed named busybox.
Why would I need busybox I'm wondering ...
I think this comes from the file /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/packages

Guess in case of emergency like when you need to rescue something yes

Busybox saved my ass yesterday (I had damaged my glibc installation). Hooray for busybox!

There are some info about it in HOWTO Migrate to NPTL

Also if you are interested, try search for busybox here on forum. There are many threads about it from last days.
