Be made aware that -- while it is possible, of course -- this is not
trivial to do.  You'll have to patch several of the source packages.  See
the corresponding Debian source packages about which Hurd-specific
patches exist and are not yet in the upstream source packages.  Not all
of the patches from the Debian packages are needed for getting a
functional tool chain, but I can't make a list at the moment.

Instead, read the first paragraph of
and refer to the shell script mentioned in there.

See the shell script mentioned above.  It contains a number of comments,
but may also be not completely up-to-date anymore.  So, please report
