I would like to test (ninja check-all) if I know the instructions. There should not be any problems building LLVM and musl on glibc-based distro. The reason why I'm building on Alpine is that I want my llvm and clang to be linked against musl (this is what I need patches for). On a glibc-based distro no patches are needed and you can use musl-clang wrapper to produce binaries linked against musl. Regards, Dmitry
