Default Source code of coreutils to create Incident Response Disk

I want to create an Incident Response Disk for Unix, but am having trouble finding the source code for the base/core utilities so I can statically compile them. I think I've found the find, and lsof source on ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/distfiles/. But what about ps, netstat, dmesg, dd, ifconfig, arp, etc.

Any other commands that would be useful?

BSD != Linux, the "core utilities" are a part of the OS, with FreeBSD/OpenBSD & NetBSD the kernel and user lands are developed together..

Which is different from GNU/Linux (Linux kernel, GNU user land..)...

What you've found in distfiles are 3rd party source archives.

You can browse the FreeBSD source at:
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/

And download it:
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/re...0-RELEASE/src/

Okay, so to make sure I understand this correctly... I can run the install.sh script from the second link you provided and choose something like "base bin sbin and ubin" and it will extract the source code for the binaries in those directories which I can then statically compile?

Actually that install.sh script looks like it is probably the script from the install CD used for installing the source tree via sysinstall.

If you look at pub/FreeBSD/releases/i386/7.0-RELEASE, you are basically browsing what is on the ISO images for 7.0-RELEASE.

In the end you just get what you would get if you downloaded the relevant parts of the source tree, which you might already have -> you didn't say.

You will also find most things of interest in bin, sbin, usr.bin, usr.sbin, and contrib under 'app'

e.g. (/usr/src/) usr.bin/head/head.c -> source for /usr/bin/head.

Install the OS, including the source distribution. Or, install the OS, and use csup to download the source tree. After that, the sources to everything will be in /usr/src/

Edit src.conf(5), and add WITHOUT_DYNAMICROOT. Then rebuild the world. You will now have a statically-compiled base OS (everything under /bin and /sbin).

Alternatively, just copy /rescue/. That's a single crunchgen'd binary hardlinked to a bunch of different names. Which gives you a single 3.5 MB "rescue" disk.
