Subject: Re: Darkcrusade 2017Jun09 (cross compiler set)

I briefly looked over the page but it's not clear to me what it is.. is it
a distribution? Or just a toolchain builder?

I'm wondering if it's similar to (which is a one step way to
build an arbitrary musl toolchain, and is excellent) or if it makes use of
it (if you're building musl toolchains it probably ought to.

Sorry if I missed something obvious, but it sounds interesting and I'm
curious, but just didn't see a clear/concise/understandable explanation of
what it is exactly.
