So Exodus will in fact compile an executable, via dietlibc or musl, but
it's an execve wrapper, and it seems you've stubbed that.

You have to change the relevant line in src/exodus_bundlers/ to:

        args = initial_args + ['-shared', '-fPIC', '-O3', input_filename,
'-o', output_filename]

# ./scripts/
OSv v0.24-488-g06704deb
execve() stubbed

But at least it parses! :)

I suspect it's statically linking too much for you, and really needs to be
dynamic enough to pull in your libc.  But that might actually be possible.
