I'm observing that build-many-glibcs.py runs can end up with modifications 
to the source directory (which later cause problems with updating the 
glibc checkout):

What this suggests to me is that the contents generated for 
sysdeps/mach/hurd/bits/errno.h depend on the system for which glibc is 
configured - which is never appropriate for a file in the source 
directory.  Either you need separate files for i386 and x86_64, or the 
contents need to avoid depending on the architecture, or the file needs to 
become purely a build-tree (and installed) file and not checked in.

Ah, indeed, kern_return.h happens to be pulling machine-specific
headers, but that doesn't matter for the errno.h content. I have thus
ruled them out from the comment.
