Not sure you can do that, since symbolic (or other) links are treated 
differently under different OS's. Besides, downloading a link seems... odd, 
don't you think?

Perhaps a simpler option would be to create a 10-second hack of a script 
that basically says:

$ for i in cp ls rm mv cat ; do ln -s ./busybox $i; done

and then just make just it gets executed somehow.
