This is actually buggy: the relative path will work on the original
instance, but not when it is restarted from the passive translator

Just use

   settrans -c /proc /path/to/procfs

-c means the node will be automatically created. -fg is not needed, if
there was no translator on this node before. -p is the default, and the
active translator will be started automatically on first access, so no
-ap is necessary either.

Please try to actually understand the options of the settrans command,
rather than issuing some memorized string -- it's quite important to
understand them if you want to work effectively with the Hurd :-)
