I just tested the package upgrades on my Hurd system at work.  Using 
apt-, it was able to fetch the packages and install them.

apt pretty much has always crapped out partway through an upgrade (This 
time was no different), so I had to run it twice, but no other heroics 
were required for the perl upgrade.

I have also now used the 'http' method for fetching stuff off of my 
debian mirror with *and* without using our proxy server at work.

Thinking of work, I should go do some... =)
