I'm trying to fix the visudo problem and so I tried to build the deb
file from source, but it will not build on my qemu hurd instance. I can
not seem to understand the error messages that well, but I think that it
runs some test and on two of them sudo does not pass.  Specifically I
believe the tests are in
sudo-1.8.9p5/plugins/sudoers/regress/testsudoers/test2 and test3. 

I simply created a sudo directory and then ran apt-get --build source
sudo as a normal user, and the part of the script where this is
happening is debian/rules build inside of sudo-1.8.9p5 directory. The
question I am asking is where should I go from here? I do not have much
experience building debian packages from source.

I also noticed that the diff file for use-flock-on-hurd is for
sudo-1.8.3p1 would the version mismatch cause problems at all?
