Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)
The latest build of sdformat for hurd-i386 (admittedly not a release
/<<BUILDDIR>>/sdformat-6.0.0+dfsg/src/Filesystem.cc:133:21: error: 'PATH_MAX'
was not declared in this scope
The Hurd notoriously has no static PATH_MAX. Best practice is to
accommodate whatever you actually encounter, since fixed-size buffers
generally either waste memory or risk being too small. In particular,
I would suggest taking advantage of realpath's policy of allocating
memory itself if you pass a NULL buffer. (You'll of course need to
free the resolved path when you're done with it.)
Could you please take a look?
