IMO, it's completely useless in this state. It's that old that it's not
even possible to compile a kernel with the thing.
The last maintainer upload was in 1998; the last non-maintainer upload was
done to fix a dependency, this year.
Since the normal gcc package should allow one to compile a cross-compiler
(Which I tried, but did not succeed to do, probably because I made an
error somewhere), I don't think it's still necessary to keep
gcc-m68k-linux in the archive.

done, and Cc'ed to firstname.lastname@example.org too, since that's the list for
m68k builders, while debian-68k is more for users of m68k systems...
