The problem is not so much the PA-RISC architecture, but the Debian
kernel source.  Look at the /src/config/param.parisc_linux24.h and see
if it be built on your Debian system.

The only place in AFS where I have seen where the actual architecture
was visible (other the endian and sizeof) was in the LWP where it was
trying to manipulate the stack using the registers. But this is not
in the kernel, where most of your problems will be.
