I'm not sure if having a non-checked-in generated file override another 
file in the source tree works correctly, the way a checked-in sysdeps file 
does override other files in the source tree.  (sysdeps/gnu/errlist.c is 
another case of a sysdeps generated file - it needs to override 
stdio-common/errlist.c, and for that matter gets included by 

If the search orderings work correctly - both for finding files during the 
build, and for installing the correct bits/errno.h header (and the 
build-tree errlist.c can be properly included from the source-tree 
sysdeps/mach/hurd/errlist.c) - then there shouldn't be any need for either 
sysdeps/mach/hurd/bits/errno.h or sysdeps/gnu/errlist.c to be checked in.
