IDN stalled because of Hurd?

Despite being in unstable for 41 days, the last version of libidn (IDN
== Internationalized Domain Names, domain names in Unicode, see RFC
3490) is not yet in sarge.

This is because http://bjorn.haxx.se/debian/testing.pl?package=libidn

Updating libidn makes 5 packages uninstallable due to depending on libidn: gsasl, mailutils, mutt, tin, whois

All these packages have the proper dependency and are already compiled
with the unstable version of libidn. 

Apparently, there is a problem only with the Hurd:
http://packages.debian.org/unstable/net/whois shows a proper
dependency for every arch but the Hurd.

1) Does anyone know why libidn does not compile on Hurd? buildd log
http://buildd.debian.org/build.php?pkg=libidn indicates no attempt :-(

2) I though that Hurd was not formally released and therefore should
not block to get into testing?
