The official xforms site site is:
lynx ftp://ftp.cs.ruu.nl:/pub/XFORMS/linux/elf ../../../linuxPPC/elf/...
not the exact path
The latest file is: bxform-088.tgz but i'm not sure, if this is linked against glibc-2.1.
Maintainer for XForms for debian is Heiko Schlittermann, please ask him for an new upload
(for powerpc) or the procedure to do an NMU to contrib.
