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
from ftp.internet-treff.uni-koeln.de/pub
