It may have caused other similar problems too. I've made a new release, 0.8.6, with just the fix for this bug: http://www.etalabs.net/musl/releases/musl-0.8.6.tar.gz As nsz said when I announced the upcoming bugfix release on IRC this morning: "i don't think i'll finish the math stuff within that time frame :)" so it looks like 0.8.7 will be the target for libm integration now. In the interest of avoiding issues like this in the future, I'm looking to make a regression test suite for static linking & weak symbol issues that will test cases of the form "using X without Y" in static-linked programs - for example, pthread_cleanup_push/pop without pthreads, stdio without malloc, etc. both to ensure that the code works as expected, and that unwanted code isn't getting pulled in and bloating the static binaries.
