Severity: important
Tags: patch
Usertags: hurd


This patch solves the build problems for GNU/Hurd due to PATH_MAX
issues. The solution is to make dynamic string allocations instead of
using fixed length buffers. The patch involves two files.
Parts of the code have been reviewed by GNU/Hurd developers and Debian GNU/Hurd
developers and maintainers.
