It's been some time, but still...

Thank you!  I'm already using that one, it works fine.

However now there is another issue, see this snippet:

    make[2]: Entering directory `[...]/'
    test -z "//lib" || /bin/mkdir -p 
     /bin/bash [...]/build-aux/install-sh -C -m 644 'libhurd-ihash.a' 
     /bin/bash [...]/build-aux/install-sh -C -m 644 'libhurd-ihash-nomalloc.a' 

I'm using the `-C' option -- but that doesn't help much if Automake
decides to have ranlib tinker with the files afterwards again.  Should
this be changed in Automake: to first run ranlib (or whatever else might
be done) on them and then install them?
