That sounds more like an A2k :-)

Try booting the kernel, its not that big of a download.

I am pretty sure I have bought ADE 5 years ago, and I downloaded gcc on many
floppies even before that. 2.6.3 or something? So even 5 years ago gzip and
co where available on the Amiga.

This is a question for the m68k-build list: build m68k-build@nocrew.org
I suspect it build-depends on atlas for a reason? I think I once tried to
build atlas, it ran wild absorbing all the memory (72MB+100MB swap).

 This is really a monster of a package... It takes forever to build an in
 the middle it aborts due to lack of memory. And it nearly crashes the
 machine with this ("cannot load interpreter, out of memory"). Please don't
 try to build it.

 Complains that Make.inc doesn't exist. No idea how to make it...
