Simply download and extract the new version of musl, then configure it like so: ./configure --prefix="<prefix>/<triple>" CC="<triple>-gcc" Where "<prefix>" is the prefix the cross compiler root was installed/extracted to, and <triple> is the GNU-style target triple (e.g. i486-linux-microcosm). No other changes are needed, upgrading is really quite trivial. With valediction, - Gregor Richards
