That explains it, thanks. Damien, Vedant, please mention this in the
commit message and in comments.

Still, OS = "hurd" sounds very wrong to me. It's probably too late to
change the LLVM triplet (quadruplet?), but perhaps OS = "gnu-hurd"
(read: GNU/Hurd, not GNU Hurd) would be a good compromise for Rust?


P.S. I wonder whether GNU leadership would have a strong opinion on this...
