After the suggested change, I can start musl-gcc and it even accepts some commands as --help
But trying to use it with ./configure script again fails with:

checking for gcc... musl-gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/work/cwork/SQLite/sqlite-autoconf-3110100':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details

In the config.log I found the following:

configure:3234: musl-gcc    conftest.c  >&5
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/local/musl/lib/ when searching for -lc
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/local/musl/lib/libc.a when searching for -lc
