You are using the bootstrap compiler, which has only very limited set
of basic Forth words defined and actually even some of those will not
work during bootstrap time.
Full set of words like 'feval' is available when the library compiled
by bootstrap compiler is loaded into non-bootstrap kernel. Your
example should compile in arch/x86/openbios.c or arch/unix/unix.c.
