On Hurd, Linux and cross-compiling a GNU Hurd toolchain

This article is both a tutorial, a war story and a conceptual introduction to GNU Hurd in which I set up a cross-toolchain, and give a colorful tour through some rough edges of the GNU build system. My host system is Slackware Linux 14.1 (running on -current), i686 – which I find preferable due to its highly vanilla nature, running software almost entirely without distro-specific patching.
