     I have built the cross compiler with

     TARGET = x86_64-linux-musl
     OUTPUT= /usr/pkg/x86_64-linux-musl

     After installation I have the following subdirs at the top of the tree:


     The first of these subdirs contains all the necessary executables 
properly prefixed. And the last contains subdirs with the non-prefixed 
executables, the libraries, including libc and the *crt*.o object files.

     I have symlinked the prefixed binaries in /usr/bin and I am now 
re-building all packages with my new gcc-6.3/musl-1.1.16 toolchain :-)
