  I'll assume you have set conf-cc and conf-ld to musl-gcc with the correct
options, then.

  That sounds very strange. What was the error that made you do that ?
And are you using flag-slashpackage or not ?

  The undefined reference error doesn't happen to me. It sounds like
you're using glibc include files with musl object files. Check your
musl installation, and your conf-cc and conf-ld files.

  flag-allstatic will work with glibc: you'll get the static skalibs with
the dynamic glibc. gcc -static in conf-ld, however, is a no-no.
  flag-allstatic + musl-gcc -static should give you a static library linked
against musl.
