I have a small issue when building (cross-compile) the Smalltalk VM on an ARM(v6) embedded linux system (Nano Pi neno and Raspberry Pi Zero) that uses Musl as default libc implementation.

The problem is that the code and the configure script does not have official support for Musl, so I created a patch file that adds support to Musl, you can find the [patch here](https://github.com/lxsang/antix/blob/master/sm_vm_musl.patch). 

With this patch, i am able to cross-compile on the ARM toolchain for my system; with  4 plugins: 
FilePlugin \
SqueakSSL \
SqueakFFIPrims \
You can find the build [script here](https://github.com/lxsang/antix/blob/master/packages/smalltalk-nano-pi.sh)

For now, i can live with this dirty trick, but i would be verry happy if the mainline VM has official support to Musl. 

That's why i create this issue.
