The sucky state of glibc has been far more problematic.  Alfred finally
convinced upstream to apply his glibc patches so that it compiles for
the Hurd again.  Last night I sent two patches in for gcc to get it
doing the right thing for us, and I hope in the next few days to have
glibc working.

I have no objections to you being part of the maintainer team for the
Debian Hurd port/package, etc., but I think that getting a fixed glibc
in first is more important than the Hurd package itself.
