I've already submitted Hurd portability fixes to the Debian glibc2
2.0.95 package maintainer, and they should be out in the next release
of that package (if they aren't already).  That way we don't have any
version skew with the Linux libc packages.

Mark Kettenis has forwarded me the patches he needed to make in order
to get 2.0.97 to work.

My plan was to use Mark's patches in the Debian glibc package until
they get merged upstream (i.e. into the official glibc-2.1 sources).
