It's the kernel, it is statically linked an in ELF format.  As long as you
are cross compiling it from GNU/Linux, you just have to trick the configure
script in thinking it is building on GNU/Hurd.  Install a cross mig first
(that's easy).  Then do something like

mkdir gnumach-build
CC=gcc ../gnumach/configure ... --build=i386-linux --host=i386-gnu

You might need to define some more variables, I don't remember which, but
you should be able to figure it out.  I know that people posted such
instructions several times, so google should be able to dig'em up for you.
