True, I test asprintf on Solaris for example, and it does not exists...the correct solution must be write the Hurd patch inside #if __GNU__ directives.
asprintf is very interesting...for good code, I think,...why could be better? do not use it, or implement this function in the pkgsrc code...

Software is like violence. Is better if it's free.
