A word of caution: it seems libpthread insists on the version of the
symbols new it uses being present, even though these symbols are weak.
(any idea how to fix this?)

This means *your system might stop working* if you don't install the
patched glibc first, then the patched hurd package. Besides, you will
need to downgrade hurd before you change your glibc, including
upgrading to the next version of the patched one.

So I would advise against trying my patched hurd right now.
Alternatively, keep a copy of /lib/libpthread.so.0.3 somewhere and
have busybox ready.
