This error should not be considered fatal in the first place.

The only reason to use SO_REUSEADDR is to allow bind() immediately even if
another process used this port. Otherwise, there is a timeout before
bind() can succeed (usually one minute).

This is convenient but not critical.

IMHO not supporting SO_REUSEADDR is against the ideology of GNU/Hurd, but
this is a different question.
