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.
JBR	with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
	sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
