I have compiled it with libffi support, and libffi is included in the release file (see above). I have put together two IPKs: one 'Debian-format' and one 'Zaurus-format': one was assembled with 'ar' and the other with 'tar' - please rename the .tgz-ipk one with a .ipk suffix. I think that the Zaurus-type IPK is the .tgz type; have a look at 'gforth-0.7.0-arm.txt' to see the contents of the archives. There are no scripts in the IPKs as no post- or pre-install is necessary - just make sure that you have /usr/local/bin in your PATH. If possible, please use the .tar.gz files, as opposed to the IPKs - I'm not sure if I got the Control file right and you may have package-dependency issues because of my inclusion of libffi in the package.
If you want to learn Forth, may I suggest a visit to www.forth.com and in particular, the reading or purchase of the Starting Forth book.
