libedit 3.1 does not compile on Hurd [1].

The problem is due to an unconditional usage of the POSIX-optional
PATH_MAX; unfortunately it is used in a static buffer, so hard to make
it go away cleanly. The easiest solution I am providing is defining
PATH_MAX if not defined already; another one could be allocate just
once the buffer needed, at the cost of "leaking" such buffer even if
until the end of the run.

Since I read you are going to upload it soon to unstable, then the
easiest solution will do it for now.
