Alfred wanted to know which flags I used to configure glibc on GNU/Hurd.
I told him.
He asked why I'd have to use '--prefix=[...] --with-headers=[...]'.
I gave a short introduction into the package-installation-system I'm
using (implying the need to use these flags).

It only was a heads-up: I'm doing this and that and it's working for me.
I gave this introduction to show what I (and others) are doing, that
it's working for us.
I wanted to give another opinion to the people designing an equivalent
system for the GNU system.

I'll continue discussing that topic on gnu-system-dicuss, ok?
