Well, I want to devote as little time and effort as possible :-) Since
there is no quick and easy way to get this to work I'm here trying to find
out exactly what the "right" way is.  So far the consensus seems to be
updating the OSKit is the way to do it "right". The next question is,
where do I get the current OSKit? The oskit directory I got when I checked
hurd out of CVS is empty.
