On Ubuntu install the musl-tools package and use musl-gcc as your compiler.

You can add a new alternative for cc with

sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/cc cc
/usr/bin/x86_64-linux-musl-gcc 10

and choose the active alternative with

sudo update-alternatives --config cc

But this will give you problems with the include paths for libraries
like openssl.

A better choice is using a distro like Alpine which defaults to musl.
You can easily test it in docker.

Best regards
