no, debian choosed to use "hurd" instead of "gnu" for the arch name. there's
probably a wrong assumption with that somewhere in dpkg 1.10.9 code.

btw dpkg 1.10.4 still works fine, look in http://snapshot.debian.net/

please some of the alpha people could put up a fixed/hacked version there?
even if you just rise epoch to 1:1.10.4 from the older version it'll save
lots of trouble.
