Busybox patch

For my Hurd rescue system, I decided to include busybox as it has many useful

However, I ran into 4 small issues while compiling my desired collection of
applets (other applets do not compile at all as they use Linux specific APIs,
but that is fine as I can always exclude them from my busybox build).

PATH_MAX is undefined, which is used on the host to compute applet tables.
Work around it by simply defining it to 1024 if undefined.

LOGIN_NAME_MAX is undefined, which is used in die_if_bad_username.c.
Conditionally exclude this check if undefined.

mailutils.c includes prctl.h, although only two applets (sendmail and
popmaildir) need it.

RLIMIT_NICE is undefined on Hurd, which is used in shell_common.c. Note that I
took the liberty to reorder the limits list so that LIMIT_F_IDX can always stay
at 2.

Patch is attached, and also available from
