Please sync gforth 0.7.0+ds1-5 (universe) from Debian unstable (main)
Contains tons of fixes

Changelog entries since current karmic version 0.7.0-0.1:

gforth (0.7.0+ds1-5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix the FTBFS on hppa by not passing -N to the linker.
    Many thanks to Frans Pop and the others on the debian-hppa list for
    the assistance in tracking this down!

gforth (0.7.0+ds1-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Try and fix the s390 build once again, this time after testing
    the sdiv_qrnnd() usage code on x86; hopefully Closes: #544827

 -- Peter Pentchev <roam at ringlet.net>  Sat, 05 Sep 2009 18:46:33 +0300

gforth (0.7.0+ds1-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Explicitly depend on libtool and libltdl-dev; several benefits:
    - make the build environment-agnostic and not dependent on what
      just happens to be installed
    - fix a FTBFS if libtool is installed but libltdl-dev isn't;
      some of the autobuilders are configured that way
  * Add a missing semicolon in engine/support.c to try and fix
    the FTBFS on s390.
  * Temporarily use libffi instead of libffcall on armel, until
    libffcall's issues are resolved.

 -- Peter Pentchev <roam at ringlet.net>  Tue, 01 Sep 2009 17:58:12 +0300

gforth (0.7.0+ds1-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix the FTBFS when building arch-dependent packages only - do not
    depend on dh_installdirs to create the gforth-common /usr/share
    directory, since it won't in an arch-only build.  Closes: #543569

 -- Peter Pentchev <roam at ringlet.net>  Wed, 26 Aug 2009 15:03:13 +0300

gforth (0.7.0+ds1-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New maintainer.  Closes: #540827
  * Use quilt for patch management and add the debian/README.source file.
  * Fix the build:
    - specify an absolute prefix to "make install".
    - remove a couple of files that "make distclean" seems to miss.
  * Add the Homepage, Vcs-Svn, and Vcs-Browser control fields.
  * Install the NEWS file as an upstream changelog.
  * Deal with config.sub and config.guess properly - copy them from
    the autotools-dev package before running "configure" and remove them
    in the "clean" target.
  * Keep the vmgen.1 manual page in the debian/ directory.
  * Bump the debhelper compatibility level to 7:
    - version the debhelper build dependency
    - add ${misc:Depends} to the binary package
    - leave removing of the *-stamp files to dh_clean
    - use dh_prep instead of dh_clean -k
    - shorten the rules file using the dh(1) helper and override targets
    - disable debhelper's verbose mode
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3:
    - leave "install-info" to dpkg triggers and add the proper dependency
  * Disable an i*86 "optimization" of passing the nonexistent -m486
    option to gcc.
  * Break out /usr/share/gforth/ into a gforth-common package.
  * Make three example scripts executable.
  * Repackage to remove the CVS directories.
  * Fix the .TQ macro invocations in the groff.1 manual page so that
    the short options are actually rendered!
  * Add all the copyright holders to the copyright file and convert it
    to the DEP 5 format.
  * Properly compile and install gforth.el.  Closes: #385399.
