Hi Evan,

The macro is not set in the chicken-config.h file.

I think the easiest way to test would probably to start with a pre-installed virtual image.

Instruction from

You can also get a pre-installed image and run it in qemu:

$ wget
$ tar xzf debian-hurd.img.tar.gz
$ kvm -m 1G -drive file=$(echo debian-hurd*.img),cache=writeback
I'll try to look into why it's not writing the macro definition into the generated chicken-config.h file.

Interesting. Can you confirm that macro is defined in the generated
chicken-config.h file?

What's the easiest way to run GNU Hurd on another Linux (e.g. Debian),
to reproduce? I used to test Hurd builds with Vagrant, but the base box
went away a few years ago and I don't know of another way to test this.
