I'm not sure that upstream has to add anything specific for that OS; at least the build runs OK. A second issue is the unconditional use of PATH_MAX, which is a POSIX incompatibility (as briefly described on the hurd-devel-debian page). 1. http://www.debian.org/ports/hurd/hurd-devel-debian Since this problem is being fixed directly with upstream AFAIK, I include as a second attachment another dpatch, which is a workaround to that, setting PATH_MAX to an arbitrary value using #ifndef/#define, so that the package could be built before upstream releases a new version of some files. [Here ends my important bug report, what follows is wishlist but is related to what's just written above, so I guess I'd better put it alltogether.] Since I noticed that mkspecs files were available for hurd-g++, I decided to give theme a try, patching debian/rules to use the following flag: -platform hurd-g++ I noticed several troubles (located in the mkspecs/hurd-g++/* files): -lICE is missing -lpthread(s?) is missing As the package is built correctly (TTBOMK) with linux-g++, I'd suggest that upstream synchronizes hurd-g++ directory from linux-g++ by copying it, so that it could be used some day for some hurd-specific options. At the moment, that mkspecs file is really outdated. Thanks for your attention. Cheers, -- Cyril Brulebois PS: I'd tag the whole "upstream" but I guess that applying my diffes as dpatches is an option until upstream has accepted (or not) them, thus I don't. Feel free to fix this if I'm wrong.
