Re: libc release soon
The only reason VIM won't build out-of-the-box under the Hurd
is that it has a build requirement on libgpm, which is an
unmaintained Linux utility that in many ways is covered by
the mouse server under the Hurd.
I am considering two possibilities to clear this build
Alternative 1: File a bug against VIM so that it does not
have a build dependency on libgpm.
Alternative 2: Create some sort of header file/library combination
that calls the /hurd/mouse server in an API-compatible
fashion to libgpm, add this to the base Hurd package, and
have the Hurd package provide libgpm and friends.
What do you guys think?
