FWIW, pmbootstrap can do this (although the main purpose of the tool is
postmarketOS development).

Run this on any Linux distribution with Python and openssl installed,
and you're ready to compile - and cross compile - Alpine packages:

$ git clone
$ cd pmbootstrap
$ ./ init
$ ./ build --arch=armhf hello-world

there's also:
$ ./ checksum hello-world
$ ./ newapkbuild -h
