I'd like to compile this one (and I tried), but it can't be compiled
from source on a Debian system.  We have no dev package for libXaw3d.

I compiled 1.3a and 1.4a-1 for sparc.  The usability of 1.4a-1 (master
has binaries for i386 and sparc) is so much better nonetheless, I'm
not compiling 1.3-1 the sparc (it would require source changes to
compile and the program is flakey).

These won't happen.  They would need to be ported first (a lot of

I'd like to see these two compiled.  (apache may be a difficult, because
other packages depend on it.)

I was under the impression that this package didn't even work right on

These three go together, tkdesk relies on an out of date tcl/tk to
compile.  I'm not going to bother.  (Perhaps the next version of
tkdesk will fix this.)

I already rebuilt this, it was rejected because of a typo in the
changes file.  (The i386 guy must have fixed the changes file after
building the package.)  I'v fixed it and resubmited.

I'm rebuilding these, I had to make two minor changes to the rules
file to get the altdev stuff to build correctly.  I hope that's ok.

I'd really like to see libgtk-perl, but I don't know what shape the
Sparc gtk stuff is in.  Debian needs to be really careful about gtk
stuff in the future. (w.r. to incompatible versions, etc.)
