I'll try this question, as I don't have much clue about the rest.

I'd say "i386-whatever-l4-hurd-gnu". Let me quote a message I wrote
long ago. I have no idea if current tools recognize this naming
scheme, though...

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