i am a bit further booting without init hang - ok i havent fixed
the problem but maybe it helps finding the bug.
I have compiled a new sysvinit (2.76) which doesnt solved the problem
so i compiled it with DEBUG and INITDEBUG (-> init.h) which
then boots quickly.
I think the solution is that INITDEBUG causes the init to fork very
early to be debuggable ...
BTW: I also installed glibc 2.0.7 etc to the mini-root -
Ah - i compiled the sysvinit on Linux/Mips/Decstation over NFS Root :)
