I've been reading the glibc doc's lately which mentions that many
GNU programs use x* functions. Also the debian maintainer for
gtkfind mentioned he was going to use the GNU projects xgetcwd which
I could find anywhere.

This isn't hurd specific but relates to porting programs. Thus
Neal said the debian list would probably be the better list.
However, I think I'm going to get onto the fd-students list and see
what I can learn there.
