Extensions usually get added based on architecture, sometimes by a member submitting it, and sometimes because

If you'd like to compile a 32-bit version, the build notes are here: http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86_64/tcz/src/bridge-utils

You need to substitute "-march=i486 -mtune=i686" for "-mtune=generic".

Thanks for the instruction to build the 32 bit version but i switched to 64 bit just for now. Found by accident that the open-vm-tools on 64 bit actually works without manually adding the pcre it depends on. Dependency is not correct in the 32 bit version.
