I agree with you and am curious what the best way to fix gcc and friends is? 

Also we need to discuss  this microkernel-independent layer (at least
it's somewhere to get started).

We also need to keep things from being x86 specific. If we want hurd to
be successful we need to help make it platform independant (which it
already mostly is). Same goes for the helper layers and whatnot. I
personally don't care AT ALL for x86, I use Alphas and only Alphas. :-)
