This indicates that "fsysopts /" failed horribly. The only way I can
understand this is that you didn't create the filesystem with
"mke2fs -o hurd /devxxx", I mean, you forgot the "-o hurd".

This way, translators are completely infunctional.

What does "settrans -c /servers/socket/1 /hurd/pflocal"
return? If it says "operation not supported", you forgot to set the Hurd
filesystem owner and are screwed.

The next time I work on cross-install, I will add a check for the filesystem
owner, and if it isn't "hurd", installation will abort.
