No, there is no "gunk" you can put on the outside to "glue" it.
Depending on how long the pipes are that go to that joint you can just
cut out a couple inches and replace with a double ended compression
repair fitting. I've fixed several pool pipes "issues" using them. No
problems after almost 10 years of use and dissembling and reassembly
for other work is easy.
Here's an example. You need to cut carefully, better to cut too small
a gap and test fit then to cut out too much cuz then your screwed.

Obviously something was there that kept it sealed for
some period of time. IDK what that even is. The ends
of the pipes look perfect, butted up, not like it cracked.
So, somebody butted it up and put silicone around it?
Solution is to cut out on both sides of that mess, get
a new piece of PVC that bridges it, plus two PVC repair
couplings. Make sure they are repair couplings, not regular.
Regular ones have stops inside so they only go on half way.
With a repair coupling you can slide one all the way on
to each of the pipes, put in the bridge pipe, and slide
the couplings back over. Or alternatively, may be able to
do it easier by removing more of it back to fittings that
are there, etc.
