LinVDR's Busybox can't handle that option. What is it good for?
This matches equal changes in recent VDR Makefiles. From VDR-1.4.1-5:
- Added --remove-destination to the 'cp' command for binaries in the Makefile to
avoid a crash in case a new version is installed on a running system
by Petri Hintukainen).
- Added --remove-destination to the 'cp' command for binaries in the Makefiles
the plugins (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
I guess, by deleting instead of overwriting, Linux can keep the old
running binary on disk until the program terminates. (Files can exist in
Unix temporarily without any file name.) As soon as the last program
terminates, the disk space is freed.
