In general, check what the Debian package does (there's a
hurd-changes.dpatch in the source package, which slightly changes the
spec as well I think in order to add -pthread and -ffast-math support).
I don't think anybody ran the regression suite for gcc in a long while;
neither for Debian GNU/Hurd nor just the Hurd (maybe I'm wrong on the
latter), so if you want to step in and care for gcc WRT GNU Hurd, that
would be highly appreciated. The whole gcc/config/*gnu* stuff might
need an overhaul, see http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=28102
for reference as well. If you could look at the current Debian changes
(modulo the --prefix=/usr change, which is Debian specific) and look at
getting them applied upstream, that would be great.
