Subject: fts in musl

The community wiki has an entry for why musl doesn't have fts.h:

And it's right, fts certainly had LFS issues.  However, the referenced
glibc 15838 was closed as a duplicate of 11460, and that bug was fixed
about a year ago by adding a proper fts64.

So it would be nice if musl would implement the same interface as fts64.

I discovered this issue from a user having trouble with elfutils on
openwrt/lede, which has patched out some fts-using functionality to get
elfutils building on musl.  Of course it would be much nicer if they
didn't need that patch.
