I mailed rms and the bug-gnu-utils list (I think that's the right list
for autoconf questions). According to rms, the canonical system name
for the "plain" mach-based hurd system should be
as I thought. What does the current glibc use? Furthermore,

Miles Bader replied that it makes more sense to switch the hurd and l4
components, giving "CPU_TYPE-MANUFACTURER-l4-hurd-gnu".

My conclusion so far is that "CPU_TYPE-MANUFACTURER-l4-hurd-gnu" is a
reasonable canonical system name to use.
