This bug report was verified against v 2.0.11-11 as found in the Debian
unstable archive and the version marked as 2.0 on ftp.gnu.org. I did
not see a cvs module on subversions.
Shell utils makes use of the macro PATH_MAX. On the Hurd, this is
undefined. Happily, shell utils handles this situation by using
pathconf, however, it does so incorrectly: pathconf returns -1 on the
Hurd. By definition, this means that there is no system imposed limit
but shell utils chooses to use 1024 in this case. This is clearly
a hack and is wrong. Dynamic allocation checking for ENAMETOOLONG,
etc., should instead be performed.
