For the technical sake of conformance to the conditions in the
relevant licenses, I believe it's sufficient to include somewhere with
the distributed binary (not necessarily in the binary itself; an
accompanying text file is perfectly reasonable) a statement with the
copyright and permission notice.

Of course if you find musl useful and would like to help promote it,
other things like putting a notice and link on the website, etc. would
be great. (As an aside, perhaps we should prepare some "powered by
musl" etc. "button" graphics that websites can display.)

No, this is actually an FAQ topic. :-)
