Was thinking an identifier like __MUSL__ would be useful as well.  So
what would be the best way to identify that this compiler is different
than the default system compiler for an example like openssl's
ui_openssl.c file?  The patch at
just uses sed to replace things.  I came up with something similar as
well when I was attempting to build openssl.  Needed to conditionally
define TERMIOS and undef TERMIO.  Would be nice if this could be done
in the code using ifdefs instead of with sed, so that the patch could
be sent back to the openssl developers.
