Do you have an eepro100?  This sounds like a GNUMach problem.

I consider crosscompiling a waste of time.  Please don't do that.

Good :).  I prefer GNUMach 1.3, it is more stable and works for more
people AFAIK (And it is easier to compile).  I think you might be able
to boot when compiling GNUMach yourself.  You don't need a
crosscompiler to compile GNUMach, you can do that from GNU/Linux.

Please give up the crosscompiling.  Mach is the problem here, if you
want to compile the Hurd yourself do that natively.
