[NTG-context] Build for Alpine Linux

Hello everyone,

Per this question on tex.StackOverflow, I am having trouble getting ConTeXt
(LuaTeX specifically) to run on Alpine Linux:


Specifically, the build from ConTeXt standalone has a LuaTeX that seems not
to run against the musl libc6 library.  Here are symptoms:

/context/bin # ldd luatex
    /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x7fd05109c000)
    libdl.so.2 => /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x7fd05109c000)
    libm.so.6 => /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x7fd05109c000)
    libc.so.6 => /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x7fd05109c000)
Error loading shared library ld-linux-x86-64.so.2:
    No such file or directory (needed by luatex)
Error relocating luatex: __rawmemchr: symbol not found
Error relocating luatex: __isnan: symbol not found

Has anyone run ConTeXt on Alpine?

Many thanks.
