note that the Hurd isn't meant to provide a POSIX API. it is
the system as a whole (GNU) that provides it (and Glibc in particular)

there are many bugs and lacks of features in the system API we
have. some of them are in the Hurd and others in Glibc. i just
put up a Wiki document with the list:

if you want to help on fixing any of them, that'd be much appreciated.
see the comments in the corresponding debian bug log and ask in
bug-hurd for any questions you have.

in particular, you might be interested on:

- missing shm* functions (for cdrtools)
- missing fcntl with F_GETLK (ENOSYS) (for GNOME)
- missing POSIX semaphores (ask Neal on what is the current patch lacking)
