In which driver does it complain about the missing outb_p() and friends?

Indeed, the only way to have some form of ISA on the Amiga is Gayle PCMCIA (or
a Golden Gate 2 ISA bridge, but this support isn't integrated yet).

Do you still have CONFIG_FLOPPY enabled? That's the PC style floppy. Please
disable it when building an Amiga-only kernel, since it won't work.
You only want to enable CONFIG_FLOPPY on m68k if you're building a kernel for
Q40/Q60 or Sun-3x.
