(Apparently didn't get successfully delivered from the list to me; thanks
 for sending a copy.)

Looking at AMPL's linux32 demo, I get this list of missing functions:

The first indicates that it may be necessary to add to
The rest are missing from musl for ABI compat.
ampl and minos are "for GNU/Linux 2.2.5", so may use the 32-bit IO abi.
__is* can be trivially implemented.
__strtod_internal is a version of strtod with an extra int that's expected
