Re: trying to cross-compile
The Debian apache source seems not to be Hurd-friendly yet, so it may need
some tweaking. [ In fact, dpkg itself is not Hurd-friendly ].
Take a look at the debian/rules, it says:
arch=$(shell dpkg --print-architecture)
This is i386 for intel, but should be really "hurd-i386".
A common problem is that some debian/rules try to configure
with "$arch-linux" as the configuration string.
In this case just append "i386-gnu" to the configure line.
Hope this helps.
