WL-520GU Router Shibby Firmware Custom Compile?

    Hi. I've cloned the latest Tomato-git with the intention of compiling Shibby's firmware for use on an ASUS WL-520GU with 4 MB flash. After running "make help", it looks like the only default build option that will work is "Mini-USB". I'm assuming this includes printer support. However, I would like to also have OpenVPN, but the USB-VPN build as set up is far too big. I noticed that it contains additional features that I don't need, such as NTFS support. Is it possible to compile a VPN-capable Mini-USB build or strip unneeded features from the USB-VPN build option? Or is there a better way to add VPN support in this situation, i.e. post install?

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. I noticed in this thread that Shibby sets the version argument (V1) equal to aa. What does this mean exactly? If it means the latest source snapshot, how would I set it to the latest stable version (equivalent to release 114) instead?
