Multi-binary compilation

To compile for systems without much space (floppy distributions etc), you
can create a single binary. This will save disk space by avoiding repeated
code between the various parts.
If you are familiar with "busybox", it's the same principle.

To compile the multi-binary, first "make clean" (if you've compiled
previously), then

make PROGRAMS="programs you want here" MULTI=1

To use the binary, symlink it from the desired executable:

ln -s dropbearmulti dropbear
ln -s dropbearmulti dbclient

then execute as normal:

./dropbear <options here>

"make install" doesn't currently work for multi-binary configuration, though
in most situations where it is being used, the target and build systems will
