*-uclinux isn't a valid tuple for musl target. If you're using a
nondefault ABI, you can reflect that in the tuple name as a vendor
label (the optional 4th component) or preferably a suffix (with no -)
after musl, e.g. muslcf. Here there may also be a way you can encode
the difference in the cpu type name; I'm not sure. But if your tuple
isn't *-musl* then gcc will wrongly have glibc or uclibc assumptions.

If you're doing a softfloat target, the ABI musl supports uses 80 bit
long double. --with-arch and --with-cpu should not be needed for the
soft float one since it's 100% compatible with conventional m68k. I'm
guessing either one of those or the -uclinux thing is making gcc
select the different ABI (possibly along with other uclibc/FLAT
oriented things that aren't appropriate with musl).

If something weird is going on with it potentially not loading plain
m68k binaries, I would really start with a known-working-on-cf
userspace and dropping m68k-sf binaries into it, and seeing where they
fail. Otherwise there's going to be a lot of guesswork here since you
can't observe what's going wrong...
