I was just able to update the cross build scripts. I have now aarch64
userland built for alpine. I still need to look at building kernel, and
bootstrapping the rest of package.

I pushed all changes to the aports already out to alpine edge. You will
also need abuild from git as few cross build fixes were added.

The scripts used are at:

And the minimal set of aarch64 packages are at:

That should be enough to start a builder.

Some packages need changes to be able to build for aarch64, but most
