Be assured that gforth is 11th on my task list of things to accomplish
as a debian-hppa porter. So it will be a while before I can get there,
but I will get there (unless gmail looses my debian-hppa porter task
list). I have an sbuild setup on my hppa machine, I will try to build
gforth and see what happens.
