The biggest problem with non-free packages, which many science-related

You were not persistent enough ;-)
Plus it is currently a bad time to ask for builds of non-free packages,
since there is some backlog on most arches. When I last rebuilt pgplot5 for
m68k, my machine was probably idling. Can you remind me where to upload
non-free packages to?

Perhaps I should just be more patient... I am not sure what you mean about uploading non-free packages. I just uploaded pgplot5 the same way as any other package, it went into unstable just fine for i386. Rather, i built a mips binary package and uploaded it the same way as the usual package with dput. Perhaps that is not the way to upload a "port"?
