Several distros do it these days (and Owl will start doing it soon as
well), so it's becoming standard and needs to be supported.
Technically, -fno-stack-protector in the musl-gcc wrapper would probably
make things appear to work, but it's not necessarily a good thing to do
since it might violate reasonable expectations of the user.  I think
it'd be better for musl to start providing the necessary symbols.
