Summary
Remove fetching of pInterp. As near as I can tell, this never had any
actual effect other than to store the location of a forth word that
was subsequently never used. It was last used before the 2.03 ficl
upgrade in r51786. It was only used from r43614 (so Feb-Sept 1999) on
head and in the 3.x branch (merged r43715 3.1 -> EOL). Remove it since
nobody cared enough to report the bug in the last 18 years rather than
fix it. It's need seems to have passed in the 2.03 ficl update.
