GNUmach is the 'kernel' that handles interaction between software and
the low-level devices and functionality of your computer.  The Hurd
sits on top of GNUmach.

The Hurd is the set of services available to a user or application
programmer.  You need both pieces.

You need to cross-compile GNUmach.  If you have a debian GNU/Linux
system, you can install the cross compiling utilities to do so.
Then you must type:  "./configure --build=i586-pc --host=i386-gnu"
so that 'configure' will know to use the cross-compiler tools.
