Some of these packages have been waiting to be built on hppa for more
than 30 days.  Is it likely that the hppa buildd situation will improve
in the near future?  The graph at [3] indicates that hppa was slowly
making a comeback but now (as of 2008-04-06) has stalled again.

I (and I'm sure others) would be very grateful if someone who would not
mind building the above packages on their own hppa machine could upload
them, as was apparently done with cernlib [4].
