Why do you think so?  The GNU changes are fairly extensive; the
ChangeLog contains records back to 1994 from you, me, and Mark
Kettenis.  I'm wondering what makes you think that our original source
is not MK82 (or MK83).

In any case, note that our source preserves the original CMU
copyrights and RCS logs.  The original CMU Makefile is also there.

Our first log entries are in 1994, and those are associated with the
original compilations of libthreads as part of the Hurd source rather
than as one of the libraries that the MK source automatically built.
We didn't have any changes before that.
