Assuming that the problem you mean as a "bad check" is:

According to the post linked from the above, the check seems to be there
to exclude incompatible implementations of gettext(), like Solaris 7 and

If musl's gettext implementation is compatible with GNU gettext, I guess
we could adjust the check to accept it.  However, I have no idea which
symbols or macros can be used for the check.  It would be helpful if
musl people could chime in and give us a hint.
