## Pycrypto on Alpine

This is just a quick post for weary travelers out there trying to find answers. On Alpine Linux, Pycrypto may not compile correctly. This is because Alpine uses the musl C library as opposed to the C standard library. When trying to compile, you may end up with something like this: checking for gcc... gcc checking whether the C compiler works... no configure: error: in /tmp/pycrypto-2.6.1': configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables See config.
