[alpine-aports] [PATCH] main/tar: avoid using broken code in cross build

From: Mobile Stream <>
Date: Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:46:25 +0300

The tar cross-compile logic fails to detect no-clobber properties of gettimeofday and tzset functions and replaces them and some dependent calls with the code from the bundled GNU portability library (tar-130/gnu/).

This includes the apparently broken rpl_gmtime/rpl_localtime code from tar-130/gnu/localtime-buffer.c which on armhf ends up as:

0004578c <rpl_gmtime>:
   4578c: e92d4010 push {r4, lr}
   45790: ebfffffd bl 4578c <rpl_gmtime>
   45794: e59f3018 ldr r3, [pc, #24] ; 457b4 <rpl_gmtime+0x28>
   45798: e59f2018 ldr r2, [pc, #24] ; 457b8 <rpl_gmtime+0x2c>
   4579c: e08f3003 add r3, pc, r3
   457a0: e5931000 ldr r1, [r3]
   457a4: e08f2002 add r2, pc, r2
   457a8: e1510002 cmp r1, r2
   457ac: 05830000 streq r0, [r3]
   457b0: e8bd8010 pop {r4, pc}
   457b4: 0002ff1c .word 0x0002ff1c
   457b8: 00030858 .word 0x00030858

The proper fix should be in gnulib (i.e. recognize musl libc as done with glibc) however the APKBUILD change is simpler and easier to remove when/if upstream fixes the problem.
