Yup, it's still pretty messy.

 RCdS> What should I do?

I'm trying to put together a glibc-2.1 package for Debian GNU/Hurd,
and when that's finished we should gain a lot more momentum.  That's
about the only Hurd-related thing I'm working on right now, but when
that part is done, I'm sure there'll be a worldwide sigh of relief. ;)

Could you be more specific about the problem you see... I thought that
I've fixed all the circularities.
