can aspell drop hppa for now? (was Re: gcc-3.0 problems)

dear debian mates,

  i'm in the same situation of tomas, i'm sure that aspell won't compile
on hppa in time for woody release. it has some kind of problem with
gcc 3.0 i cannot manage and i'm not receiving any help (see bug #139515).

i think that leaving current aspell out of woody would be a mistake,
i'd prefer to drop hppa for the moment.

i'm going to upload the new packages before next weekend.
