Hi, I'm one of the people working on TDE ebuilds for Gentoo.  The other two 
don't spend much time on the mailing lists.

I don't think anyone's tried to build against Gentoo musl yet (or any other Gentoo 
variant except standard amd64).  Testing inside a chroot is probably the way to go.
Doubly so if you're looking at hardened.

If you don't know how to proceed, I can see about setting up a chroot using 
stage3-amd64-musl-vanilla this weekend and testing to see whether tdebase and 
dependencies build and install.  (This doesn't *absolutely* guarantee that they'll
run properly, but they probably will.)

(For those who have no idea what this about:  musl is a replacement for glibc.
It's most commonly used for embedded systems, but Gentoo has installation
media that allow it to be installed for desktop systems.)
