I guess too much happened since then on both sides. I have pcc 1.1.0.DEVEL 20130227 with pcc-libs-20130721 and it seems to still work fine with current musl. Note that some fixes are needed for pcc-libs: - You need to remove the broken csu files and replace them with symlinks to the musl files. - You need to add __attribute__((__visibility__("hidden"))) to all external functions in libpcc. - You need to add -fPIC to the CFLAGS for building libpcc or you get a broken libpcc (containing textrels) that can't be used for building libc.so and that's harmful for use with any other shared libs. I just ran libc-test with libc.so built by pcc and confirmed that there are no non-math regressions versus gcc-built libc.so. (I did not check math in detail because there are lots of known math failures that are not serious.) Let me know if you have any further questions about my setup. Rich
