PATH_MAX issues can be worked on on Linux, yes. But a test is needed on
Hurd afterwards, in case some other, non-PATH_MAX issues remain.
For sure, once it builds on Linux I have to try it on Hurd.
But the build process take longer in my qemu. And I'm used to use pbuild which is also a bit of an overhead.

I normally ssh into the VM to get the correct keyboard layout, a
scrollbar, etc. In kvm/qemu ssh/telnet can be set up by port forwarding.
I do the same but all network related processes are waaaay slower! 
"apt-get update" take ages! Same when I went to download a package dependencies!

Anyway I have first to get comfortable with the "fix/build/create patch" process before moving to a "currently slower" environment!

Thanks anyway for your comments!

Oh, one last question: According to the timestamp this list [1] seems up to date, should it be the one to choose packages to fix from?
