What is your goal in getting it smaller? With static linking, only the object files needed by a program end up in the resulting binary, so compiling less will not make your binaries any smaller. The only benefits I can think of are (1) reducing time to compile musl, and (2) storing the development files on an extremely small storage device. If you tell us what you're trying to do, we can offer better advice on how to meet your needs. Rich
