Unhappy Busybox installation error

I have Samsung Galaxy Pep (GT-S5570I) running Android Gingerbread 2.3.6.
I have successfully rooted my phone.
Now, I am trying to install Busybox on it.
First I tried with busybox installer, but it produced the following error.

error: reloc_library[1312]: 4233 cannot locate 'android_reboot'... CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE
Then I tried to do it manually, through adb shell (from Win XP), as follows.

adb shell
#cat /mnt/sdcard/busybox > /system/xbin
#cd /system/xbin/
#mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
#busybox --install /system/xbin
error: reloc_library[1312]: 4233 cannot locate 'android_reboot'... CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE
Same error, no matter what I do.

Any ideas what's happening, and how to fix it?

Thanks for your time,

Yes, mate it kind of worked; when i downloaded the busybox (apk)package.
previously i had downloaded busybox installer from google play which kept giving the above error.

i found the actual apk using APK Leech. and it worked.
I feel like kicking myself. I kept trying it the hard way, whereas an easy solution was right in front of me.

Thanks for your suggestion, mate.
