"wrong" guess :) Palemoon 27 indeed needed gcc 4.x series, however this
fork has updated code and compiles up to gcc 6.5, this has been tested
on Linux /Devuan, Debian, Ubuntu and Gentoo). as well as NetBSD.

IN any case, here it is not an issue with the code, but with the
compiler tests failing due to linker symbols. I guess this is soemthing
Alpine specific.
