Thanks a lot!  It is weird that there was no report send to bug-hurd
(yet) about the patch I've uploaded.  Anyway, the patch that I've
uploaded is without the generated files.

Jeff, what is the status of your automake'ifying work for the Hurd?

Ok, I will fix that.

Ok, I must admit that I did not have a close look at these _LOCAL
functions.  They were removed in oskit-mach.  I assume Roland would
not remove it if it was not ok to do so.
