Sorry for giving a tag that doesn't exist. Regarding inkscape it will be
built for GNU/Hurd by one of the trhee buildds when libgc1c2 7.1-4
builds properly in experimental. A patch for libgc has been submitted,
#611643. The wishlist bug for inkscape is already closed by Samuel
In the future we (at least me) hope that GNU/Hurd will be mature enough
to be included in next release!
