But, as you know, it is hard to include a microkernel name in a host
type, without breaking anything. If the (current) Hurd had used
"i386-pc-mach-gnu", things could have been much easier...
So what I'm now thinking is to put predefinitions for a microkernel
in a header file, rather than a configuration file (such as
"specs"). However, this has deficiency that programs cannot determine
on which microkernel Hurd runs, if the user hasn't installed header
files, and that it is slightly difficult for scripting languages to
handle the difference among microkernels. Thus, your proposal may be
