Yes. Hopefully we can arrange the code to make this not ugly.
BTW, the Hurd has __GNU__, but this should only be used when really using
Hurd features, which is the case here. (Note that BSD sources in Debian have
the tendency to have #ifdef __linux__ when POSIX or glibc stuff is used, eeek ;)

Not only for libshouldbeinlibc, but also for libps. The libps is the
interface to the proc server, which provides process database.
libshouldbeinlibc contains some helper stuff and some Hurd specific
additions to libc. Some of this should be merged into libc, the rest in a
hurdutil library or so. In our case, only three symbols are of interest,
fmt_past_time, fmt_seconds, fmt_minutes, which are sucked in by libps.

I think I never figured out how to add a library to only one program in a
subdirectory with autoconf. But you can use:
AC_CHECK_HEADERS(hurd.h ps.h hurd/ihash.h)
