deplibs-ident2.patch is a combination of deplibs-ident.patch and the
added code expecting a failure for GNU/Hurd. Since both patches touch
the same file it was easiest to make a combined patch. Problems arise if
it is placed before or after the original deplibs.-ident.patch. I can do
this but is it really necessary? Maybe an explanation is sufficient.

I thought we should be up to date with the main Debian Sid packages. Has
anything changed with respect to that?
