Subject: Re: Latest pkgsrc results [What builds on musl 0.9.7?]

I recall looking into the Sabotage patches for Apache before, but 
concluding that the way pkgsrc builds Apache makes it sort of a pain. I 
may look into it again, but frankly it's pretty low on my priority list. 
The patches exist out there (in Sabotage), so it's not like musl users 
can't get Apache to build.

Qt4 is actually near working, if I devoted some time I'm confident I 
could get it building. gnutls I haven't looked at, but I'd appreciate if 
somebody did.

gimp indeed doesn't build. I'll take a look.

libdrm fails due to an out of date patch for libpciaccess. I'll just 
have to fix that ^^ยด
