[alpine-devel] Attempting x86_64 build

I've got an x86_64 busybox/uclibc partition set up, courtesy of buildroot,
and I've started building a few packages. nano built okay so I've moved
on to apk-tools so I can obviously start to use Alpine tools to build
and install more packages. It needs pkgconfig, zlib and openssl so I
managed to build pkgconfig and zlib but I'm stuck on openssl because it
needs perl and the buildroot target only has miniperl (or maybe none at
all, not sure) so a coule of questions...

. would it be possible to build openssl without using perl?

. would it be possible to build apk-tools without openssl?

. should I drop back to pre v1.9 and use the scripted apk tools?

I barely know how to use the 1.9 apk toolset let alone the earlier ones.


I've also got an Archlinux ARM chroot and managed to also build nano
but nothing else so far as their is some problem with setting time
in the provided glibc. If I manage to get enough x86_64 Alpine packages
to build, to bootstrap a clean system, I'll post a tarball and follow
the same method for ARM.
