Description Michael 'veremitz' Everitt 2020-04-06 08:41:42 UTC
A number of packages in the Gentoo repository will not compile under musl-libc because of the lack of backtrace support. Errors such as "fatal error: execinfo.h: No such file or directory" are a good indicator of this.

One potential ultimate goal/answer to this problem is to port affected code to libunwind (

In the meantime, however, we will likely simply patch affected code with an #ifdef __GLIBC__ until upstream has made appropriate changes.
