Most changes I had to make were either processor-related or had to do with the
differences between GNUMach and OSF Mach (which already existed on the PowerPC,
so that I didn't have to worry about getting Mach to work). And _I_ was amazed
that I didn't have to change anything in the Hurd code (except for the GNU vs.
OSF Mach things)!
