Re: xpdf-reader: missing build on hurd-i386
Hamish, I happened to notice that xpdf-reader is on the RC bug list
(#369117) because it lacks a build of the current version on hurd-i386
(this happend during a mini-bsp on Saturday). I proceeded to ask the
debian-hurd list if they could try building it. Below is the result; I
felt it prudent to include you in the discussion at this point, I hope
that's OK (maybe I should have Cc'd you originally, even).

To me, conditionally adding the -lpthread sounds good, but I'm not
particularly knowledgeable about these things.
I've never seen anyone wear a Freudian slip.
