I can tell you from reading that readelf output that
-Bsymbolic-functions was ignored by the linker (or it was patched out
of your musl build entirely?). For a correctly linked, the
local entries list should be huge and the global entries list should
be very small, referring only to global data symbols, not functions.

In any case, that's your problem. You need a linker that respects
-Bsymbolic-functions to build musl. The configure script tests for
accepting the option, but I don't have a way to test whether it's
broken at this time.
