Can you give more info about this option?  Is it enabled when compiling
the Debian package under Linux? If not, why does it make that difference?
If yes, why isn't it enabled when under Hurd?

Well, there is always a way to fix it properly by managing arbitrary path
names.  If you can work out such a patch, that is always preferable, because
the kludge above will make it break when you use epic with longer filenames,
which the Hurd supports.
