The musl libc in this case is built with binutils-2.20.1, since the older 
binutils (2.17) didnt work. You helped me with this exact problem some 
months ago.

I have a build-environment where I specify all the dependencies for each 
build. binutils-2.20.1 is then a dependency for musl (where binutils 2.17 
is the default).

So for my use-case I can always specify a later binutils as a dependency 
for all musl builds. Though dynamic linking is a low priority for me, 
since all resulting binaries must be statically linked.
