Yes, I did read the discussion. 
As you mentioned there was something in tools/env I downloaded PPCBoot 2.0
and I downloaded U-Boot. 
I just had a look at fw_env_main.c and I failed to recognize it as a busybox

I did the work a few weeks ago, before I knew that there was something in

What is in tools/env is just what is needed.

Did you bother to check the recent discussion on tyhis list? All this

Is there anything  wrong  with  the  existing  and  working  code  in
tools/env ?

Why did you reinvent the wheel?
