(Anyway, isn't musl only a tiny > percentage of the total build time?) it takes a pretty long time, especially when built with .a and .so support. for example, to compile the things in stage0, you don't need math support at all, and the full musl gets built in stage1 again. if i can halve the time spent during stage0 musl builds, that will sum up soon.
