Sure. You can grab it directly from Debian:

  $ wget http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/musl/musl_1.1.16-2_ppc64el.deb

  $ dpkg-deb -x musl_1.1.16-2_ppc64el.deb .

  $ lib/powerpc64le-linux-musl/libc.so 
[2]    25672 segmentation fault (core dumped) lib/powerpc64le-linux-musl/libc.so
