Package: yelp
Version: 2.24.0-2
Severity: normal


Yelp currently FTBFSs on Debian GNU/Hurd due to unconditional use of 
PATH_MAX.  This isn't the great fix but it does work.

In src/yelp-gecko-utils.cpp:

#ifdef PATH_MAX
    char xpcomLocation[PATH_MAX];
    char xpcomLocation[4096];

Normally I would try to fix it "properly" but docs for GRE_GetGREPathWithProperties() says that buffer should be of PATH_MAX or MAXPATHLEN.
