Well, I don't see the problem. You have apk.static which provides basically what
debootstrap does. It can be easily automated with a bit of scripting.

If that is too much for you, you could even make use of Docker to create your
own build service. It is indeed a bit of work to do, but I don't see how the
alpine toolchain isn't sufficient to do so.
