Using a sub-hurd should be quite easy.  Please post the steps you tried
here and we can try to identify anything amiss.  The easiest way to be sure
you've got everything set up right is to do a fresh-partition Hurd install
that you can verify works when booted natively (a partition with just
libc+hurd should get you as far as bootstrapped and running shd).  Once
that works, there are very few things to do wrong using `boot' to run the
same thing as a sub-hurd.

It should be required, because /lib/ld.so is the PT_INTERP name put into
binaries by the i?86-gnu gcc specs.  That being the case, it probably ought
to be installed by libc's install.
