Okay, thanks for pointing the direction.
I already have X11 stuff in my TODO list for the musl-enabled system,
but now I feel it will just fail without any results with huge error
And I already see the X11 stuff in the sabotage tree. Does it builds
At this time I think to take an older X release without some stuff I
don't need. X11R7.6 build requires python and weird xml libs for
example. Maybe even XFree86 (to test it in qemu for the micro desktop
system project).
