thanks for the nice explanation why. I understand, and I think i will use
this chance to move to the better solution in the Hurd dpkg package (alas,
because Ian starts from a very old dpkg, I can't wait for him to catch up
and have to roll my own).

I'll get it. I didn't use the dpkg-cross one because it couldn't have a PATH
for libraries, /lib was the only one it reckopgnized (/usr/lib not...).
If this patch is better, it will be used or enhanced.
