Sorry for not responding so far. I tried the rebuild and it failed
then. After that emacs25 sometimes succeeds and sometimes fails to
build on Hurd buildds. Mostly fails unfortunately.
Examples:
 25.1+1-1: fails
 25.1+1-2: fails
 25.1+1-3: succeeds
 25.2+1-2: succeeds
 25.2+1-5: buildd hangs

So the problem persists, even if the Debian package build is now
different. I don't expect that a build from Emacs master would succeed,
if built the Debian way with three targets: build-nox, build-x and
build-lucid. When I tried with the master sources the largest problem
was when enabling X. Still the same problems with Emacs
internal/external malloc-related code exist.
