Summary:                    Buildroot uses lots of cp commands that assume GNU
cp
Description: 
There's some incompatilibity between GNU cp and Mac OS X (probably BSD,
too) cp commands. GNU cp arguments -d and -a do not exist on OS X. -a can
be written -pPR on OS X. -d is partly covered by -P and partly by -R. -P
is the --no-dereference part of -d and -R does what --preserve=links does
AFAICT. The ugly part is that -R, which is also recursive, has to be used
to get real as-is copying of symbolic links. Attached a patch for some of
the cp commands, but there are many more. Maybe, patches could be appended
to this report.
