I compiled glibc from savannah and used it with the Hurd recently
without problems. I don't know where Marcus gets his glibc sources
from when he generates the .deb's.

Look at the Changelog in the main glibc directory ;-). Pay special
attention to sysdeps/hurd, sysdeps/mach etc.... You'll quickly find
out what changes apply to the Hurd.

No. The current glibc _is_ the actual official C-lib for the Hurd.
