I have only tested with simple C++ .so files using the musl-built, and so far, they've worked fine. These tests are by no
means extensive, just "hello world". I have not tried using the
glibc-built again; the "missing symbols" check was
based purely on the output of:

    nm -u -D | grep -v -e _[UJ] -e ' w '

Do you know the subject line of the thread where your issue was
discussed before? I'd be happy to go look and see if I think the issue
is fixed now.
