Yes :)

Though I added libanl which we do want since we haven't moved libpthread
into libc.

I haven't tried that at all.

We can easily cross-build debian packages thanks to the rebootstrap
scripts from Helmut:

They will just *not* work with 64bit. The glue code is not ready at all,
and I think it's really not useful to spend time on that when we have
the rump drivers which should be working fine.

Now, that being said, you can also use an initrd, see debian's
50_initrd.patch (which nobody has yet taken the time to clean according
the discussion at the time). That's enough to run a full Hurd system,
you can for instance take the initrd files from the debian installation
