Hi all,

I know that the hurd is not supported on Guix at the moment. I was
trying to give it a try in spite of that, and it is failing to build.

I am sure that this is a known issue, but I could not find any
referencing issues of recent on debbugs.

I’ve taken care of that on ‘core-updates’, which will hopefully be
merged within a week or so:


On that branch, you can run, say:

  guix build sed --target=i586-pc-gnu

and you get a GNU/Hurd binary.  \o/
