After check the installed package of execline on alpine. I choose to install main part of execline to /usr/bin.
Create /usr/sbin directory, create relative symbol link for cd, umask and wait to /usr/bin/execline.

# rebuild the conflicted files (filesystem, bash package) in /usr/sbin
mkdir -p %{buildroot}%{_sbindir}
rm %{buildroot}%{_bindir}/{cd,umask,wait}
cd %{buildroot}%{_sbindir}
ln -s ../bin/execline cd
ln -s ../bin/execline umask
ln -s ../bin/execline wait

Any suggestion?
