If I could make a suggestion:  It seems that the hurd-i386 architecture
is being omitted for the lack of a postgres server on hurd.  Postgres
is lacking because Hurd doesn't have SysV IPC - and is not likely to 
for some time.  However, it seems a shame that PSPP should not have
a Hurd package for such a trivial reason.

There is no reason that PSPP actually needs a Postgres server to run 
or build. It's only needed for that one test.  Users on Hurd can still
make use of PSPP's postgres features (they'll just have to connect to
a database running on another machine).

Is it possible to adjust the build dependencies such that Hurd-i386
does not depend on Postgresql?  That way, I beleive the test will
just be skipped in the make check stage.
