Gforth's default method is broken, since it relies on compiling wrapper
functions via gcc and lib-tool at *run time*, then loading them via
dlopen().  There is no gcc and lib-tool on the nanonote (at least it's
not complete yet), and the dynamic linker pecularities of ld-uclibc
might make things difficult.

The complete, english documented forth sources that were the basis of
the article are here:

But they need some cleanup/completion before I can package them for NN.
Note that fbdev.fs from the above url lacks the ioctl() that disables
the cursor in graphics mode, so fbdev.fs is somewhat broken.  Need to
backport that feature from the article's forth sources *.fs in
