Hello Micah,

fwiw i didn't even get answers to my posts or answers?

mmm I tried to hack lib/syscall-fallback.h so that:

For my first approach, I just grab deb src pkg and hack a very few 'rules' to build for hppa.
(just getting rid of dietlib [afaik only available for i386] for a first attempt ;-))

Don't hesitate to ask me for test if you need ;-)
