I started having a look at this, but no promises that I'll stick at
it to the end.  I wont be able to test on anything but the m68k
vme systems btw.

Anyway, so far I hit a problem with rescue.sh doing tests on
$system for 'atari', etc, when rescue.sh has been invoked with
$subarch='atari' and $system=''.  For now I've swapped $system
for $subarch in rescue.sh and am carrying on.  That affects other
than m68k though (pmac, iirc).

I don't understand the difference between subarch and system,
I guess.

Next problem was that m68k-specials/bootstra.ttp was missing.
