this is slightly broken - there has never been 68000 support
in Linux.

this would work but not very well on 68060 models though.. here
are the options:
  a) use m68k-*linux WITHOUT -m68000 flag. Will loose some
     performance on 68020-40 models, nearly optimal for 68060
  b) m68020-linux will loose *lots* of performance on 68060 models.
  c) compile 2 versions of the library/program for 20-40 or 60

(a) is pretty acceptable, (b) would be probably the worst alternative. 
(c) would be nice and I think it is time to use multilibs for m68k-linux.
