Great!  I have already integrated the "glibc-hurd-powerpc.patch" part of
the changes into libc.  I am doing some rearranging of the libc code while
integrating your changes, to reduce copied code and so forth, and various
other nits.  I am not yet able to try compiling for ppc, so I may have
introduced some stupid problems.

When next you have the time to work more on libc, please start from the
current cvs version of libc to reconcile your changes (see
http://sources.redhat.com/glibc/ for how to get the current cvs state).
Relative to 2.2.4, I think the current state will only be easier to work
with (i.e. numerous bugs have been fixed), so I hope this won't be any
extra work for you.

By the way, I want to thank you very much for separating your changes into
patches separate topical groups, i.e. ppc stuff vs osfmach stuff.  This
makes it much easier for me to deal with each piece on its own and get it
into the best form.  Of course, I also want to thank you again for working
on the port.  It's very exciting!
