  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.
