I read your mail. but the problem here is different, the Hurd's
mount doesn't support mixing argument options with non-argument options
in the same dash, like this:

mount -rt fs

which is equivalent to:

mount -r -t fs

Dselect uses the command i referred to, which causes this error:

rmh@bilbo:~$ mount -rt fs
mount: invalid option -- r
Try `mount --help' or `mount --usage' for more information.
