Thank you for your comments, they are much appreciated and shed light on
this issue.

Cool. Gordon, can you comment on this patch? If you are integrating it at
your end, I can integrate the patch to hurd for the Debian package (a new
Hurd package is overdue anyway).

I have finished compiling a tar file of inetutils. I would like to upload
them to alpha.gnu.org, but I can't connect (ftp just sits there). I will try
to put them at master.debian.org, if you are impatient, get it from there
(usual address: http://master.debian.org/~brinkmd/hurd/).
