     OK, got it. I understood the install path as an install *prefix*. I 
should have specified


         instead of


     And I didn't notice it created bin, include, lib, libexec and share 
and, since it also created x86_64-linux-musl, which has the name I 
expected and also contains bin, include and lib,  I concentrated on this 
one which wasn't as expected.

     Maybe worth mentionning the path is the base of the sysroot, not a 
prefix. There must be other idiots like me.

      Thanks for your patience.


     Now it works. Thanks for your patience
