Are you saying ldconfig can't update the links on Hurd? Can this be

My only concern is that the solution to another policy proposal
presented to debian-policy (assuming it still exists) involves moving
the symlinks outside of the package, and creating dynamic links with
ldconfig instead.

This would allow installing multiple libraries at the same time, if
