So you don't have musl.

This means that we have a bug in first-setup.sh and setuptex then. I'm sorry.

Well, we just dropped i386-darwin and powerpc-darwin from the
minimals, we dropped powerpc-linux some time before that which shows
that there's no super strong promise to keep the binaries there
forever (oh, and we also had i386-linuxmusl for a couple of days which
I deleted a few days after adding it because Karl removed it from TeX
Live). Whether that's considered "long term" is left as an exercise to
the reader. If getting the binaries gets difficult and there are no
users requiring support, the binaries will go.

I was aware that until Hans implements support in mtxrun the first
installation on musl would be broken (I never liked this strange
dependency with mtxrun trying to guess the platform). But that should
not happen on a libc system, that's a bug.
