This should not happen.
This is what I have installed. As you can see xforms is not installed, but
un xforms <none> (no description available)
hi xforms-dev 0.86-2 GUI Toolkit for X Window Systems
hi xforms0 0.86-1 GUI Toolkit for X Window Systems
hi xforms0.86 0.86-2 GUI Toolkit for X Window Systems
Which version of xisp and xforms do you want to install?

This should be libforms.so.0.86, not 18 ...

libforms.so should point to libforms.so.0.86
libtkstep is also pointing to a non-existing file.
My advice: get mc. It shows you if a link points to a file or not.
"good" links will show up with a @ prepended, "bad" links have a "!".
Get newer versions of mc and xisp than there are on the debian ftp-servers
