Of course, you can checkout an older Hurd from CVS and compile that.
ext2fs depends on lots of libraries, but you don't need the full dist, just
go into build/ext2fs and "make ext2fs.static".
You would need to go as back as of Aug 22. Aug 23 the changes were commited.
Or take an old gnu-YYYYMMDD tar file and extract gnu/hurd/ext2fs.static only.
But note that there have been some bug fixes too since then.
