You might want to look at gcompat, which is a compatibility layer
being incubated as part of the Adelie Linux distribution (as well as
carried by Alpine).  It can run many glibc binaries through a custom
ELF interpreter that invokes the musl ELF interpreter with an
additional preload containing many glibc compatibility symbols.

On Alpine, you could do "apk add gcompat@...ting" or similar to get
it, assuming the testing repo is enabled.
