Dear  Team,

While trying to configure musl package on power arch(ppc64le) we are getting the below configure issue

Reflink:-
musl - musl - an implementation of the standard library for Linux-based systems (musl-libc.org)<https://git.musl-libc.org/cgit/musl/>

Musl version 1.2.1:-
Download link:- https://git.musl-libc.org/cgit/musl/snapshot/musl-1.2.1.tar.gz


Detailed issue.

Architure used:-
uname -a
Linux f1a836851f19 4.18.0-348.12.2.el8_5.ppc64le #1 SMP Mon Jan 17 06:49:39 EST 2022 ppc64le ppc64le ppc64le GNU/Linux


Issue faced:-
./configure
...........
checking preprocessor condition _CALL_ELF == 2... true
checking preprocessor condition __LITTLE_ENDIAN__... true
checking preprocessor condition _SOFT_FLOAT... false
configured for powerpc64 variant: powerpc64le
checking whether compiler's long double definition matches float.h... no
./configure: error: unsupported long double type



Regards,
Ankit Paraskar

Are you using a toolchain that now supports IEEE128 long double?  Musl
was not going to support the previous IBM 128 double-double long
double format.  Now that PPC64 Linux supports IEEE128, there may be a
mismatch.

Thanks, David

You need a toolchain built for powerpc64le-linux-musl target where
long double has the same size/range/representation as double. The musl
ABI for ppc64 uses this because the legacy IBM double-double type for
long double does not match our policy of only using IEEE-conforming
types for long double (which various code in musl depends on), and
support for IEEE quad on ppc64 is limited (even moreso at the time the
port was added) and would have tied us/users to particular compilers
that support it.

If you're trying to use the musl-gcc wrapper on a glibc host, you
~may~ be able to make it work by setting the CC variable to something
to override, like CC="gcc -mno-long-double-128" or CC="gcc
-mlong-double-64" (not sure which if either of those works; the GCC
docs seem to be omitting it but referring to it elsewhere).

Thank you for the suggestion , this really clarified the error.
Would also appreciate to share information on code contribution for musl repo, aspect of CLA Contributor License Agreement - Wikipedia<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contributor_License_Agreement> requirements.

Thanks,
Ankit P
