FS#2926 - busybox: less: search doesn't work

Steps to reproduce:
Open any text file in less and press “/” or “?” key to start search.

It does nothing on OpenWRT, which is very unfortunate...

This is expected, many busybox options are disabled to lower flash size requirements. See also

You can enable this in your own build (look for BUSYBOX_CUSTOM and FEATURE_LESS_REGEXP in menuconfig), or else just install the full-featured "less" package.

If you really want to see this in future versions of openwrt (which will already need higher flash size anyway), send a patch with a size comparison:
