I have got a musl instance compiled with pcc which seems to be usable.
A pcc compiled and linked against it reproduces itself and then
reproduces the same code for musl.

The catch:

Using --enable-optimize=no leads to a broken library (at least
concerning the variadic arguments).

Now we know that this is possible with the current version as well,
but not without optimization :)
