You're absolutely right. Somehow I was under the impression that you
were trying to compile Hurd on Linux. (Which is possible and not
necessarily unreasonable, but rather involved as I implied earlier).

If you got an error while building in a Hurd installation, can you
please paste a longer error? (It is hard to say what is going wrong
from the two line you pasted earlier.) You could even redirect the
whole output of 'make' to a file (for instance, "make 2>&1 | tee
log.txt") and attach it to your next email.

Also, please indicate exactly what source you are using: did you 'git
clone' or used the Debian package? Which revision did you use?

Yes absolutely.

You might also need to build the GNU C library, since many parts of
the Hurd are implemented there. Here I highly recommend you use the
Debian source --- it is the only version which is known to work; the
situation with the other repositories is a little bit messy.

(By the way if you or someone else would like to help sorting this
out, that would another possibility for a highly valuable and
appreciated contribution :-)
