 Thanks for doing this work.  However, some notes:

 Package porting stuff can stay on debian-hurd.

 Your patches are backwards.  Diff the new files against the old ones, not
the other way around.

 For libgsm, you shouldn't have removed #include <pthreads.h>.  This is a Hurd
bug that can be fixed by Neal's libpthread or pth.

 For xfce, why does constant.h need to be included in all those files?  It
doesn't seem to be needed for GNU/Linux.  Especially in a file in intl, which 
from what I remember of automake/gettext is that those files are usually 
automatically created somehow.

 And now for something completly different.
 I'm sorry to the authors of the mach ipc guide and using_the_hurd manual for
not merging
