The correct action for programs that need GNU functionality like this is to include their own copy of the GNU function (usually as part of gnulib) and use it if the system does not have it. In the case of GLOB_BRACE and the other GNU extensions to glob/fnmatch, it's not clear to me that they admit an efficient in-place implementation, and I doubt they do. That's why musl does not support them. Rich
