Subject: Re: cluts test suite with musl

Thanks !

I applied the patch. Still have some tests failing.

For instance tests/buf fails with the following error message:

iconv(&<"abcd">, &<4>, &s, &<3>) caused a SIGSEGV!

I am not sure but  it seems that iconv()  that is called from wrap_iconv()
should return  an error return value and set an errno value.
At least to my understanding  that the way the test is written.
For musl implementation of iconv()  returns 0 and sets no errno.

While in the case of standard Linux implementation, errno = E2BIG and -1
returned ( error return value) .

For the case buf linked dynamically against the standard library:

 ldd tests/buf => /lib64/ (0x00000030d1000000) => /lib64/ (0x00000030d4400000) => /lib64/ (0x00000030d0800000) => /lib64/ (0x00000030d0400000)
        /lib64/ (0x00000030cf400000)

Can you please look into this ?
