The linker flags are set somehow automatically by the build system which
is carried over from PaleMoon and FireFox.

In what could the flag differ from standard linux? It is libc, so I
wonder why it is not found.
We can see that


is invoked.

Do you know of any specific patche sin the Firefox build system about
linking? or special linker option to pass in the .mozconfig file? As now
I am treating AlpineLInux just as " linux"
