\ Look checks first if the word is a primitive. If yes then the
\ vocabulary in the primitive area is beeing searched, meaning
\ creating for each word a xt and comparing it...

\ If a word is no primitive look searches backwards to find the nfa.
\ Problems: A compiled xt via compile, might be created with noname:
\           a noname: leaves now a empty name field

    \G returns 0 if it fails.  This word is not absolutely reliable,
