You need to create it by running autoconf. The configure script is
distributed in the released versions of the Hurd.

How are they not complete? Please be more specific. It ignores the
Hurd specific header files in /include and picks the ones in $srcdir
for a good reason, you might be making modifications to them.

Please be more specific. What is missing?

Where ever you want to, the Hurd CVS tree is not used when compiling
things other than compiling the Hurd (doh! :)

Put the `random' directory in your Hurd tree and do (building in the
srcdir is not very tested):
$ cd random ; make
