Subject: links to some info/sources (Heirloom, pcc, ncurses)?


I have been playing with putting up some AURs for stuff statically
linked against musl, like Heirloom (toolchest) (zlib
dependent packages built, ncurses ones still on TODO) (jsh) (had to disable
ACCT but seems to be working ok anyway)

I have seen some messages pass about someone setting up a
musl-compiled pcc (and pcc-compiled musl) that was able to build
Heirloom and I just wonder if there is a source for the pcc wrapper
script used (similar to the musl-gcc one). I am interested in trying
something similar in AUR (and put it in as an optional compilation
alternative for the Heirloom packages), but my googling failed to find
a good source.

The second question was regarding ncurses. Some utilities in Heirloom
require curses but I fail to build it for musl - but it seems to be in
Sabotage. Are there any good patches/tricks around to get it to build?

Ps. has anyone tried replacing busybox with Heirloom in Sabotage? Ds.
