After much frustration and cursing, I've gotten a customized bootable image onto my WRT54GSv6, thanks to the Firmware Modification Kit by Jeremy Collake. I had to remove the huge httpd daemon (which had the whole web interface embedded in the binary) to make room for dropbear, and now I find out that the latter won't even work:

/bin # ssh jcomeau@tektonic.unternet.net
ssh: can't resolve symbol 'getaddrinfo'

Looks like I'll have to compile from sources after all... grr...
