There's something I miss: hurd already pre-depends (other than the usual 
shlib dependency) on hurd-libs0.3, which is where the shared libraries 
were moved, so hurd-libs0.3 should have been at least unpacked before 

Also, considering the files in hurd-libs0.3 are in a multiarch libdir, 
unlike the old location in hurd, so there is nothing which should have 
prevented unpacking/configuring hurd-libs0.3 with hurd < 20130226-2.
