Alpine uses must c which is "opinionated" about things like
defining a CPP symbol to differentiate itself because it claims one
should not be needed because it provides a standards compliant
implementation and such checks should be unnecessary:
At the same time it uses a malloc implementation that causes
problems for programs which try to use a custom allocator (replace musl's

I guess one can do something weird like:
defined(__linux__) && !defined(__GLIBC__)
to work around this...
