Hi, First of all, thanks a lot for keeping Debian working on hppa! Now, a package of mine, gforth, has been exhibiting a weird FTBFS on the hppa architecture; it breaks in the GNU configure stage, trying to compile a series of programs that do a binary search to determine sizeof(char *). Unfortunately, I do not have a hppa environment available for my testing, so I cannot really isolate this bug, even though I have some idea what upstream change could have caused it - and if it is indeed what I think, then there's something very weird indeed with gcc on hppa. As I've asked on the -mentors list a couple of days ago, is there a way I could set up a virtual hppa machine for myself, starting from some base sid, squeeze or even lenny environment? Something like Aurelien Jarno's qemu images of lenny for various architectures at http://people.debian.org/~aurel32/qemu/ or, if not for qemu, some other emulator? I'm not sure I'd be quite up to the task of performing a full Debian installation from scratch in a qemu environment in the next couple of days :( Once again, thanks for taking care of the hppa port!
