Some more information.

When installing the package, you'll hit this bug:
<http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?20656>.  Rebooting helps...

As the Hurd doesn't take `/etc/inittab''s content into account, you'll
have to add a line like ``runsvdir-start &'' to `/etc/rc.local'.  (Yes,
we could really be doing better...)

And yet another issue: if you run services that write to stdout / stderr,
then their messages won't show up in the ``ps -Aw | grep runsvdir''
output, but you'll get ``Resource lost'' error messages in there instead
and the services aren't guaranteed to function properly.  So, don't
forget to set up log sub-services.
