If you do such modifications to the upstream source on otherwise portable
packages, please be sure to guard it in appropriate #ifdef's, usually
I don't know about build dependencies and stuff, but the same holds true.
Please make sure if you modify otherwise portable packages that we don't take
notice of the changes next time we try to compile it on GNU/Hurd.
