I have reported the issue to  config-patches at gnu.org as requested. However, can we revert the changes made in https://github.com/TeX-Live/installer/commit/ff98be775bf48aa576cbc25aa337dd5626af6550 in the mean time? This would help to fix the immediate problem by using an old version of the config.guess script.

You can access to a musl OS easily using docker. For example: docker run -it alpine /bin/sh
