That's what my package does it installs dropbearmulti :-)
Which is ca. 120k compared to ca. 320k of the 3 stand-alone binaries.

One reason why I created the keys on the host is also that I don't
have to clean up .ssh/known_hosts after each flash to the developer
system - they keys do not get overwritten once created.

So we propably need a flag if the product we are compiling is intended
to be a system still in development or a system that is going to be
(widely) deployed. Maybe such a flag would be a thing that you could
provide in the SDK?

So I think I will add your suggestion and a flag in the Makefile
to switch between the current and the new ("deployment") behaviour.
