    The bxform-0.88 you tried is three years old!

    Please try with bxform089-glibc2.1.tgz instead. Since that was
    compiled on a Debian Gnu/Linux 2.2 (potato) machine, it will
    probably work better.

    But you might want to simply install the Debian package:

    It depends on:

     Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2), xlib6g, xpm4g

    which I think will be okay on potato (check first). Don't wait
    too long because at some point libforms0.89_0.89-9 will be
    installed in the archive and it won't be potato-compatible. (I
    guess I should make a copy of the potato-compatible packages
    while I still can too).
