The attached patch addresses a problem reported as
<http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=656869> where, even
though no limit is defined in GNU/Hurd, MAXPATHLEN is limited to 1024.

Increasing this to 4096 creates parity between GNU/Hurd and
GNU/Linux. I'd be interested in opinions about whether this is sensible
to apply.

Thanks,
Dominic.
