static linking with musl libc

+3 votes

I have built sysrooted gcc (4.7 and 4.8) understanding Ada, C, C++ etc, statically linked with musl libc and with musl in the sysroot. It is for x86_64 architecture. It is convenient to be able to copy it to any Linux distro and run it right away, even on machines on which I have not the root privilege.

My problem is that, when passing the -static argument to gnatmake (which is also the default, I think), the resulting file is still dynamically linked with the libc. I understand that this feature has been introduced because the Gnu libc has an incomplete static version -- at least part of the networking is missing. But this restriction does not exist in musl. It should be possible to turn this feature off when using musl, but I can't find which place of the source of gnatmake I need to patch. Would you be kind enough to point me to the right place?

As per my understanding uninitialized static variable is stored in BSS and initialized static variable is stored in DS, then what about the variable which is initialized with 0 ? where it will be stored BSS/DS?
