I was going to install a Debian/FreeBSD to adapt my old util-linux port
to the Hurd again, and correct any issues found on the BSDs. It seems
you were faster :>

Ok, as the Hurd needs a considerable amount of changes to the upstream
src, and the upstream releases often (currently on 2.11x), I don't think
such changes will be integrated easily... so I think the right solution
is to speak with upstream directly and do such changes to the last
version. Then, once the package compiles fine on all arches, and a new
debian package is uploaded, send patches against the debian part.

We can work together with this if you want... what dou you think?


PS: there are a lot of linux specific programs that are tagged !freebsd in
  your patch, you could invert the logic.
