GHC on hurd

Dear Samuel,

you previously have worked on GHC on hurd, so I’d like to you give you
ah heads-up that we have uploaded a new version of GHC to Debian
experimental and it fails on Hurd. It seems that the function
"howToAccessLabel" in compiler/nativeGen/PIC is not defined for Hurd.

I also noticed that hurd is not detected by the configure script of ghc
and treated as OSUnknown in the enumeration in
compiler/utils/Platform.hs. Maybe you want to change that and add a
OSHurd there; there is already OSFreeBSD that you might want to take as
a template.

If you need help with the Haskell syntax or the workings of GHC, #ghc on
freenode might be the right channel; I’m likely there as well.
