That is due to /servers/socket/1 not existing.  
inet and 2 having nothing to do with it.

You need `settrans -c /servers/socket/local /hurd/pflocal' and `ln -s local 1'
or thereabouts.  The names `local' and `inet' are just for humans, so
all that's really required is `settrans -c /servers/socket/1 /hurd/pflocal'.
The code looks up /servers/socket/N where N is the decimal PF_* number 
(1 is PF_LOCAL, 2 is PF_INET).
