Do note however the unconditional definition of NO_HIDDEN in 
sysdeps/mach/hurd/configure.ac (and the corresponding comment pointing to 
a discussion of that).  We really need Hurd people to get current glibc 
working on Hurd without external patches and contribute 
build-many-glibcs.py support for it so it's possible to make sure changes 
don't break Hurd.
