The busybox source contains the "examples" directory. It contains several example scripts and configuration files for the various tools available in busybox.

I'm especially interested in the udhcp scripts, which are required in some form to make the busybox udhcpc usable. But the other configs and scripts in the examples dir also look useful for me.

So it would be nice to have the examples dir added to the busybox package, I suggest to copy it to /usr/share/busybox.

Additional info:
* package version(s): busybox 1.34.1-1
This task depends upon

This is really annoying for example in Arch virtual machines or containers where udhcpc is used as a lightweight solution. It will succeed in getting a lease but will not configure the network interface when the default script is missing which is confusing to debug because busybox doesn't report anything wrong.
