Yes, it is a real bug in pfinet. I can reproduce it with just fsysopts
(eg, without your ppp port).

I doubt the proper headers are really included. In the Hurd CVS there are
some changes to include the proper time headers. glibc adjusted them to be
stricter (POSIX defines what headers of time.h and sys/time.h you need to
include to get the prototype of a symbol), so you need to check if really
time.h is included and not sys/time.h (for time() and localtime()).
