>From my experiense, what ext2fs.static is looking for is /servers/exec, in 
principle that file must have been created by cross-install, unless it 
failed for some reason before it got to that point. If you have the latest 
cross install from http://www.debian.org/ports/hurd/hurd-install and the latter
happend you are better off trying to rerun the cross-install script. If you 
have an old version get the latest one, or you can try `touching' /servers/exec
from linux and reboot.

BTW, to whomever is working on the filesystem servers, should ext2fs be
relying on the existance of that file, or can it assume the responsibility
of creating it if it's not there?
