You seem to encounter the very problem which the newly discussed
 --library-path solves. You may need to run your musl-linked binaries
via wrappers, starting them like
 /..../ --library-path /...yourseparatelibplace /the...binary [args]

Let you look at the recent posts mentioning LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

(Note that hacks like "MUSL_LIBRARY_PATH" do not allow using
in the same process tree different versions/instances of libraries,
iow being about as much broken as LD_LIBRARY_PATH)
