-static normally does not imply -no-pie with musl target. musl was the
first to introduce static pie, and it was not treated as something
special/weird you have to request, just what you get with -static +
-pie or -static and default-pie toolchain.

When GCC upstreamed static pie with glibc support, they made it so
-static overrides -pie and so you need the new -static-pie to get
static pie. musl patches for gcc revert this change since it's a
regression to the original behavior, treats static-pie a second-class,
and does not work with environments where pie is mandatory (like nommu
targets) where default-pie *must* be honored.
