Where did ldconfig.real come from? If it's part of the Ubuntu system
you're compiling from, it shouldn't be getting run on the cross-target
at all; my guess would be that something in your build process is
unaware that you're cross-compiling. If it's part of the target musl
system then it should not even exist; ldconfig is a glibc thing.
