AW: [dev] [stali] Need musl based toolchain on stali installation

Hi Cág,

it's important for me to understand that stali applications are meant to be compiled on a separate host. Thanks for clarifying that. I had just started building a native static toolchain for stali based on Linux from Scratch which taught me quite a lot about the crappy things like auto-made makefiles.
Perhaps I will continue just to see what I end up with.

You will need to build your own toolchain then. I actually don't
understand why you need a toolchain as a part of you stali,
because you are not supposed to build things in it.

stali is not a general purpose distribution, more of an embedded.
It doesn't ship a compiler by default, you don't want to install and Firefox there. The goal is to reduce memory footprint
and overall size of the system.

But if you really want to, nothing stops you.
