You need something like,
/var/local/apt-hurd $ cat apt.conf
/* This is not necessary if the two machines are the same arch, it tells
the remote APT what architecture the Debian machine is */
/* Use the disc for state information and redirect the status file from
the /var/lib/dpkg default */
// Binary caches will be stored localy
// Location of the source list.
Last time I tried this it doesn't work but apt has improved. I think the Problem was
dselect. But now you can use aptitude or capt - I haven't tried this yet.
