Details would have been useful. I think this is not a special Hurd issue,
but anyway. I believe gconv-modules is obsolete and included in libc0.2.

Note that a full glibc build needs 640MB disk space and might crash a few times
on the Hurd.
You don't need to build your own glibc to get debugging symbols. You can
install the libc0.2-dbg package and get libraries with symbols in
/lib/debug. Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib/debug will make sure that those
are preferred over the stripped versions.
