There are two separate issues here.  First is compiling your own programs
against the hurd headers and libraries without optimization.  Second is
compiling the hurd package itself without optimization.

As to the first one, that should certainly work and be considered a bug if
it doesn't.  This is what you actually noticed and what is actually a
problem for anyone in practice.  I have exported the missing symbols from
libc, so with 2.2.5 and later this should work now.

The second one is a different question.  This is what this bug report is
explicitly about.  But in practice noone ever wants to compile the hurd
without optimization.  I'm not going to bother trying to support this, at
least not right now.  I've just checked in a bunch of cleanups that help
with this, mostly inappropriate use of `extern inline'.  But there are so
many such cases in the pfinet code that is taken verbatim from Linux and we
don't want to modify, that I'm not inclined to fix all the other cases in
our own code just now.

Please separate the two issues into separate bugs.
The former should be fixed now and please verify that.

The latter can be a wishlist item or just punted if you don't care.
(You can't compile the Linux kernel without optimization either.)
