Therefore it is the distribution itself which has a libc, and whether that is glibc, musl, or dietlibc (just to name an utterly outlandish option) is up to the distribution. However, there is one additional file installed, called /init, which is also the root of the emulated process tree. And that file is statically linked against musl (as you can tell by running "strings" on it). It apparently generates a couple of files from Windows' current system settings (like /etc/resolv.conf).
