I can confirm that --enable-static works and produces a statically linked binary.

And I recommend that the CFLAGS variable isn't completely overruled. Instead the -Os should be appended:

export CC='musl-gcc'
export CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Os"  # please observe double-quotes
./configure \
  --enable-static \

Hi climbTheStrairs. The source used is the same as in the Arch Linux dash package so that is why that source is selected.

For building, I probably had a reason for doing what I did back then. I will try to adjust the PKGBUILD sometime soon when I got time.

Perhaps use ./configure --enable-static instead of export CC='musl-gcc -static' and export CFLAGS='-Os -static' (and why the flag used twice?)?

Also, is there a reason that this source is used instead of the one from the upstream URL (

Version is out since 2020-12-23 07:58:12. The same PKGBUILD but updating version and checksums work alright.

Indeed I never had this problem before with this package... and I had built locally. Updated with your hack for now.

Gives an error for me; apparently it ignores 'CFLAGS' and tries to statically link glibc. I fixed it with CC='musl-gcc -static' but that's kind of a hack.
