I'm trying to get isc-dhcp (4.1.1-P1-16) to build under GNU/Hurd but
have got into some problems with respect to configurations (in addition
to the PATH_MAX stuff, I intended to fix). Looks like HAVE_SOCKET has
to be enabled, but in order for get_hw_addr to be defined, either
Berkeley Packet Filtering (BPF), Linux Packet Filtering (LPF) or Data
Link Provider Interface (DLPI) (SUN specific?) is needed. Trying with
bpf the following header files are not found:

#include <net/bpf.h>
#include <net/if_types.h>

Looks like bpf.h is available at /usr/include/device/
not at /usr/include/net/ but not if_types.h.

They don't seem to exist at the standard locations for the Hurd.
However, according to the web, Zheng Da did fix some problems for the
bpf in 2009, so it seems to be supported,

Downloading if_types.h (installing locally) and trying again fails on
BIOC* stuff not defined. Also /dev/bpf? devices does not exist. Is
support for bpf in GNU/Hurd only partially implemented??

Looks like bpf.c cannot be complied without the appropriate headers (and
corresponding library support). Is there a work-around?
