bug-hurd list.

What do you mean exactly? X has been working on the Hurd in the past.
There are working xserver 1.4.x packages in Debian GNU/Hurd.

Presently I'm aware of two issues with X on Hurd: Never releases (1.5+)
won't work because of missing support in libpciaccess. And some users
(including myself) recently have problems with the local socket
transport not working anymore.

So, what did you actually do? Which version did you port, on what system
are you running, and what was actually done in ways of porting?
