 I had the same problem, but since I'm a coward, I chose to install the
 `big giant tarball' rather than complain.. See the `easy guide' at 
 http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd for information about where to get it
 and how to install it etc..
   Of course, this is no solution, but if you want a working hurd system
 fast, this is the way to go..
