building with pcc+musl:

i built heirloom with pcc+musl but i think the modifications
i used are mostly the same as the heirloom patches in sabotage

but i can dig up my scripts if you want

i managed to build ncurses with musl+pcc using -D_GNU_SOURCE etc

for heirloom i needed minor hacks like

echo '#include <ncurses/curses.h>' >include/curses.h
echo '#include <ncurses/term.h>' >include/term.h
