Thanks Andreas. Exercising the GnuTLS build was exactly what I was hoping for.

Regarding the hurd build error, is there some #ifdef guard we can put
in place to properly protect against it for hurd like systems? I
assume this is just an old ipv6 stack that doesn't have some newer
feature. Something along the lines of this completely wild guess:

#ifdef IPV6_TCLASS
*optname = IPV6_TCLASS;
*optname = NULL;

Is there an easy way to see what /usr/include/bits/in.h or
/usr/include/linux/in6.h contains for hurd?
