The problem with task packages is the dependency line.  HURD will want
differenty named libraries and utilities.  Some task packages may work
without modification, others will work on both platforms with Linux | HURD
alternatives, but I suspect that some at least will have to be rebuilt
specifically for the HURD.

Task packages are some simple that even I can build them.
