This is definitely a new one.  Looks like glibc breakage to me.  But
if tzconfig works later on, it might be a more subtle problem.
Definitely worth taking a closer look.

On the rant issue, I don't think there is anything special about
cross-hurd wrt to bug reports.  The bug cropped up using crosshurd,
probably because it is the first thing in a new hurd install that
makes the bug pop up.  In any case, reporting it as a bug to crosshurd
sounds appropriate to me, if only to make it apparent that crosshurd
doesn't work until this problem is fixed.  Of course this doesn't look
like a problem you can address in crosshurd, so the appropriate
reaction for you as the maintainer is to reassign the bug to, well,
the hurd package (as a general place holder for hurd specific bugs of
unknown origin - we can reassign it to glibc if we think it is a glibc
issue, etc).
