Subject: an alternative implementaton of the glibc-specific argp* interface?


The background: a purely musl-based environment.

I am trying to compile elfutils
They are said to be necessary for building certain xorg drivers.

Unfortunately the package uses the argp* interface, includes <argp.h>
in many places.

There are some musl-compatibility patches for elfutils
but they do not seem to address this issue - they possibly suffice
on systems which also have glibc and hence the expected includes in the
"system" directories.

Is anybody aware of sufficent stubs for this gnu-specific interface?

There is "gnulib" but it is a very heavyweight tool for such a purpose,
it enforces the use of and coordination with the whole auto* suite
and is meant to be used by the upstream developers rather than at
deployment builds.

Any suggestions?
