I do not understand what the problem is.

It is ok to compile GPL program (gold) with MIT licensed libraries
(musl). In this case you have a GPL licensed binary `gold'. You can use
it to link MIT licensed programs and get MIT licensed binaries as
output. How is it different from using GPLed compiler? BSD systems are
using GCC without any problems.
