I was also compiling the libc things yesterday and got it working.  I
just did ln -s /l4/include/* /usr/local/include, which isn't very nice,

my system anyway).  My program didn't use any hurd libs though, I guess
I need more links to make them work.

Yeah, yeah, such hackery will work for now, I did this myself.  But if
you go that route, you need to know even more about black magic than
if you simply set up a proper cross compilation environment.  Just a
couple of points:

Hmm, that sounds dirty :-(

Anyway, I'm writing a walkthrough in the form of a script to get the
thing running.  I'll probably post it soon (but not before FOSDEM).

Sure.  If you really want to get us ahead of where we have already
been a zillion times though, it would be nice if you could work out
how to get proper "make install-header" targets with automake, so that
we can have a clean and proper bootstrap procedure without dirty tricks.
It can't be much that is required to get this working properly.

Sounds good, but I don't know much about autotools.  Perhaps this is a
good time to learn about them. :-)

Also, there should be a
note about linking the include and library files.

I hope I have made sufficiently clear why there should not be such a note.

Well, at the moment the absense of a note suggests that everything
works.  It doesn't, you either need to make a cross-compiler, or do the
linking stuff.  If creating a cross-compiler would be easy, there should
be a note about that, but I think it is better to have a note saying
that for now you need to make the links for it to work, until the
problem has been fixed.  At that point, the note should be removed of
