(To whom it may concern)
xforms seems to have gone stable, and at the same time moved.

The new URL is

An updated DETAILS file is attached.

This is not enough, though - the compilation can't see libXpm:
/---- last (failing) command (one long line):
gcc -m32 -o fdesign -g -O4        -L/usr/X11R6/lib   fd_attribs.o

make: *** [all] Error 2
I don't know why this fails; /usr/X11R6/lib/ is there (as is 
the library that symlink points to).
A related issue: xforms has no dependency file - but it clearly has 
dependencies... lvu won't tell me, though, from what module 
/usr/X11R6/lib/ comes (why?).

           SHORT="An Open Source XForms GUI XLib library"
cat << EOF
XForms is a GUI toolkit based on Xlib for X Window Systems. It features
a rich set of objects, such as buttons, scrollbars, and menus etc.
integrated into an easy and efficient object/event callback execution
model that allows fast and easy construction of X-applications. In
addition, the library is extensible and new objects can easily be
created and added to the library.
