rm made it compile with $[]# again.  Perhaps BUILD-FROM-SCRATCH
needs to remove a bit more?

Unlikely.  $[]. is not yet used anywhere now, so it doesn't matter if it's
correct or not.  $[]# is the right thing, it returns the size of the string
array, which is for sure the propper loop count.

I think you might have a build problem if you have some older
lying around; removing them is a good idea.  The rule of thumb is that
Gforth should build with BUILD-FROM-SCRATCH using the last stable release
installed, but not necessarily from some development debris lying around
;-).  During development, some disruptive changes are allowed and it is also
possible that some things do not work as expected, though, of course, I try
to maintain a high standard of quality.
