Yes. But providing a nice general patch that won't break other
platforms will go a long way to get your patch included. If it is too
much work for her, upstream may just ignore the Hurd for now and will
cause more work for us in the long run.

IMHO you should definitely use asprintf. An asprintf implementation
with the proper license is usually easy to snarf from the net, and
linking that with your code if the platform in question does not
provide it is no big deal either.
