Subject: feature request: flag to disable math library build

i'm currently doing lots of testing in qemu, and compiling musl takes a 
*very long time*, especially on MIPS, where either the emulation is much 
slower than ARM, the speed difference is due to the crappy OABI, or the 
kernel for the emulated system is doing something stupid.
in any case, it's 2 - 10 times slower.

currently i'm debugging a segfault in the mips dynamic linker (after i 
spent nearly 12 hours building a static gdb).

for this kind of testing it would be advantageous if i could disable the 
math library entirely (since it is completely unnecessary), which 
accounts for roughly 50% of the build time.

this might also be an option desired by ppl that use tcc or pcc.

maybe --disable-math ?
