Subject: musl-llvm and crtbegin/crtend


First issue, and probably an easy fix, is the link to crtbegin.S and 
crtend.S on the musl wiki page entitled BuildingLLVM.  The current links 
are broken, and should (probably) point to (the actual files are 
under arch/{$ARCH}

More importantly, though: from very recent communication on the clang 
developer list, it is my understanding that the NetBSD crtbegin/crtend 
are the _de facto_ standard for self-hosting clang toolchains.  If that 
is the case, does anyone know of a special license exception pertaining 
to these files?  If I read the license correctly, then every binary 
containing the resulting crtbegin.o and crtend.o would have to include a 
copy of the license with its documentation.  If there is such exception, 
then I'd suggest that the wiki page includes a link to it.

Kind regards,
