Great that the bugs are fixed I reported, thanks a lot!

Btw, bug#33658 can be closed or reassigned to dpkg-iwj or however you handle

I hate to disappoint you, though. There are still some issues. Some were
reported earlier:

  * scripts/dpkg-divert and update-alternatives: Don't hardcode ENOENT!

  * dpkg-deb/Makefile.am: Fix LOCALEDIR for cross-compilation.
  * dselect/Makefile.am: Likewise.
  * man/Makefile.am: Likewise.
  * md5sum/Makefile.am: Likewise.
  * split/Makefile.am: Likewise.

And some are not reported because I don't have a clever idea yet what to do
about them. But maybe you have:

* archtable does not support Hurd (same problem has apt, btw).
* scripts/dpkg-divert and update-alternatives: Don't hardcode ENOENT!

* scripts/dpkg-shlibdeps.pl: Fix problem with libraries residing
  somehwere else than in /lib. (Because the /usr -> . symlink confuses
  stuff). I have a patch for that, but I need to revise it before
  confronting you with this hack.
* debian/shlibs.default.i386: libc6 -> libc0.2
  (will probably be resolved together with archtable)

* dpkg-architecture support in rules file for cross compiling.
  Checking if they are available and setting --build and --host and
  --with-arch to configure is sufficient.

As soon as those issues are fixed, i have one Hurd bug left, which may or
may not be fixed (has something to do with patch and -b option, very
obscure). Anyway, it seems that we're coming closer. I will open a bottle of
champaign the day I can compile the "upstream" dpkg again, and drop the
dpkg-hurd series.

thanks a lot for your fine work on dpkg,
