If you're building a native compiler rather than using the wrapper you
should edit the specs to point the linker here (-dynamic-linker option).

You should not need --build or --host unless you're doing weird
cross-compiling stuff. In a native environment (which you have) just
CC=pcc ./configure --prefix=/usr && make should be all you need.

musl provides an empty librt.a which should satisfy anything using
-lrt. All standard library functions are in the main library; it's not
broken down into parts because that just makes the system slow,
bloated, and harder to maintain.
