That is unfortunately correct.  The Debian Hurd package is patched
beyond recognition, to the point that if you build a stock Hurd
component and install it on your Debian system, the system likely
breaks.  Help reduce the pain by upstreaming the debian/patches.

I don't recommend that.  Instead, hack on a branch that sits on top of
the current master.  Then, drop the Debian packaging bits from my
repository here:


Just clone this repo and copy everything to your git tree.  Then build
the Debian package.
