07-compat-define-PATH_MAX.patch Have compat.h define PATH_MAX if undefined
This solves the build problem on Hurd. Not sure if this approach,
replacing all PATH_MAX usages with UNIX_PATH_MAX is better.
Or even if it would be possible to rewrite all users of both of
them to not rely on PATH_MAX at all. Oh well, this builds...
(no other testing done.)

10-error.c-buffer-overflow-in-msg2.patch [PATCH 1/1] error.c: buffer overflow in msg2()
A buffer overrun in msg2() was observed when executing the HOSTNAMEOVFL

If strncpy() truncates a string it does not append a terminating NUL
character. Insert a NUL character after the destination area.
This ensures that strchr() will stop at the end of the string.
