"We" also should time to time do something for fix this or other bug :>
I don't see is someone is interested on AXP port (also You :> ).
Many packages do not compiles correctly on AXP or are out of date (latest
is XFree86 which even do not pass "rpm -bp"). All avalaible packages are
produced anly because we build all packages on all archs but I don't see
is it even used or tested by someone.
