Dear HPPA porters, what's the status here?

Yes, the binary removal is the best option, if the porters are not able
to fix this arch-specific problem. I would like to avoid this at all
costs, but it might be the only available solution.

Carlos, could you, as HPPA porter, shed some light on this? Can we
expect this to be fixed in the next few weeks? Is anyone actually still
trying to fix this?
