For people eventually interested in fixing it (since I really don't
have the time at the moment), I've been "accidentally" building Emacs
21 for some week using debian sources and applying to them only
hurd-libio-glibc.dpatch. To compile, I used a plain "./configure" (and
set the prefix, IIRC).
I am not a "debian guy", that is I do not know how to prorperly use
the debian tools, so this seemed to me the most quick way to get emacs

I hope you find it useful, since this could be a starting point for
fixing emacs21.

It was a type of people I did not know, I found them very strange and
they did not inspire confidence at all. Later I learned that I had been
introduced to electronic engineers.
