I'm using the musl packages availables on Ubuntu Unicorn, musl-gcc is
available at /usr/bin/musl-gcc and musl includes are at

I've not modified musl source code, only modifications have been to
add that symlinks for linux, asm & asm-generic includes so they are
available to Node.js during compilation. I didn't found a cleaner way
to do it. They are not required by Node.js itself, but instead by

The build scripts are generated by GYP and the Node.js build process,
that I'm generating with

CC=musl-gcc ./configure --fully-static --without-ssl

(--fully-static is a flag that I've patched that adds '-static' to gcc call)

/usr/include should not be referenced, if so, I wouldn't need to add
the symlinks for /usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asm-generic :-/
Anyway, I'll review the full build process.
