Upgrade to new upstream bug-fix release 1.23.2, quoting its website:

overrides built-in headers, not appends to)."

- add fixes from upstream (bumping portrevision)
- permit overriding USE_GCC from environment (but note that GCC is
  required due to GCC extensions that are unsupported by clang)
- actually pass CC and CXX as themselves, and HOSTCC/HOSTCXX through
  MAKE_ARGS, so that it actually gets effective

- new port, based on the fixed busybox, for the unstable 1.21 branch,
  with install conflict with busybox-[1-9]*
