The musl-gcc script is limited in its usefulness, and was not really
designed/tested for repurposing an existing x86_64 gcc as an i386-musl
one. You should be able to make it work though by editing the musl-gcc
script to remove the double quotes around "${REALGCC:-...}". If that
works for you, this is possibly a change we should make upstream.
