[issues:#5077] build fail on GNU Hurd because of PATH_MAX

LilyPond failed to build on GNU Hurd because Hurd does not have PATH_MAX.
Fortunately, a workaround is available thanks to the combined effort of
Debian developers Don Armstrong (Debian package maintainer for LilyPond)
and Petter Reinholdtsen (Debian Hurd guru).

Petter expressed his wish to send this patch upstream to be included in
future releases of LilyPond, hence this bug report with the attached patch!

A little bit of history:

Changelog for LilyPond Debian package version 2.16.2-2:

2014-09-10, Petter Reinholdtsen <pere AT="""">, <pere AT="""">:

Hi. The lilypond package do not build on hurd, even with a hurd patch
in place. The cause seem to be a typo in the file
debian/patches/hurd_file_name_support, checking for GNU_SOURCE
instead of _GNU_SOURCE (at least that is what the getcwd() manual page
claim to look for).

Attached is an updated patch, fixing that bug, a memory leak
forgetting to release the memory allocated by get_current_dir_name(),
and adding the same code in the test code.

Please replace the patch in the current source with this new one, and
consider sending it upstream. :)

Reviewed and committed the patch to the debian-experimental branch
(intended for an experiment with LilyPond 2.19.x and Guile-2.x)
in the LilyPond deb packaging git repository:

Discovered the above, and cherry-picked Dr. Tobias's commit onto the
"debian" (stable) branch with 2.18.2.

Many thanks!
