I vaguely remembered hearing about or1k, but it isn't (for instance)
on "https://wiki.debian.org/Glossary" so I went looking it up on
"https://wiki.debian.org/OpenRISC", where I read:
* 2016-02-11: openrisc.debian.net shut down, project officially
declared dead due to copyright issues.
(The blog link doesn't explain in detail what issues these are; it
just links to a post on a mailinglist that isn't there any longer.)
So I suppose "https://www.debian.org/ports/" needs an update.

sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
