I just discovered that `[Hurd]/exec/' contains a number of source files that have -- at the time they've been installed (1998 resp. 1994) -- been verbatimly copied from the bzip2 and gzip (?) packages, but haven't been updated ever since.

I suggest this to be revamped and instead use and link against libbz2 and libz.

These files from `[Hurd]/exec/' are also used within libstore.
