[alpine-devel] bridge utils in Alpine Linux

Hello, great Distro.

I've found an small issue, maybe not an issue or I am doing something wrong.
Installed Alpine Linux latest as a small firewall, and I am using brctl
alot also having some scripts that rely on brctl showmacs command.
Now, brctl in Alpine Linux is provided by busybox. Issue with that brctl is
it's quite minimal and lacks showmacs command.
Bridge-utils package looks like a dummy package (provides no brctl) and the
source fails to compile to me because of musl.
Any ideas? Thank you
