Which gnome packages?  I have been rebuilding the gnome 1.0 packages
in the staging area. 

Also, I've compiled the prerelease of the update of XFree86 for slink
( with a patch added to fix the /dev/fb* problems,
it can be found at:

http://www.cse.msu.edu/debian slink xfree86
ftp://ftp.cse.msu.edu/pub/debian slink xfree86
http://www.debian.org/~dunham slink xfree86

I've also started work on XFree86 (I'm merging in the
UltraPenguin patches) - when I am finished, we will have accelerated
Creator support (used on some UltraSparc machines) and accelerated ZX
(aka Leo) support.

I'll try the libc packages too.  You were also working on an a sparc64
compiler, right?  What's the status on that.  If egcs 1.1.2 can
correctly compile the sparc64 kernel I'd rather use it than the
current egcs64 package (which gets internal errors on the 3com

Also, some people may have found this out already, the sparc64
platform does not run libc5 packages unless you use the ld.so from
UltraPenguin.  I will port the patches when I find some time.  This
problem is only relevent to people trying to build altgcc packages on
UltraSparc systems.  (We essentially need a different version of the
dynamic loader on sun4u machines.)
