RFS: yorick (updated package; fixes FTBFS on powerpc and obsolescence)

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 2.1.01cvs20060706-1
of the package "yorick", which I am adopting. The version currently in
the archive is obsolete and FTBFS with GCC 4.2 on powerpc (#367895).

Florian Ragwitz volunteered for sponsoring a few weeks ago, but seems
short on time at the moment. This upload is required before I can RFS
add-ons for Yorick, bringing a lot of nice features.

It builds these binary packages:
yorick     - interpreted language and scientific graphics
yorick-data - interpreted library for the Yorick language
yorick-dev - development files for the Yorick interpreted language

The package is lintian, linda and piuparts clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 250903, 306726, 333074, 346861, 357679, 367895, 372975

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/y/yorick
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/y/yorick/yorick_2.1.01cvs20060706-1.dsc

yorick-dev introduces some helpers to package add-ons, I therefore
suggest having a look at them in action in these two sample packages:

dget http://www.mpe.mpg.de/~paumard/debian/dists/unstable/main/source/yorick-yutils_1.1.1-1.dsc
dget http://www.mpe.mpg.de/~paumard/debian/dists/unstable/main/source/yorick-z_1.2.0.0.cvs20060511-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards
 Thibaut Paumard
