[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: procps
Version: 1:3.2.8-9
Severity: important
Tags: patch
Usertags: hurd


The current version of procps fails to build from source on hurd-i386.

This is caused by debian/patches/vmstat_part_format.patch, which uses
the PATH_MAX constant.

I'm not sure what the preferred form of submission is for such things,
but the attached "patch to the patch" fixes this problem.
