FYI, last night's elinks-0.12 snapshot (elinks-0.12-20080909)
includes a similar patch.  (This has not yet been merged to
ELinks 0.13.GIT.)  The source also no longer makes assumptions on
the range of errno values like 0.11.4 does.  So I think the lack
of /dev/random is now the only Hurd-specific problem hindering
the use of ELinks.  If you configure GnuTLS to use some
user-space entropy source, and configure ELinks to use GnuTLS,
then everything should work fine.

The Debian experimental elinks package seems stuck at
0.12~20080527-2 though?  I guess you can't have a newer version
specifically for the Hurd.
