Building m68kboot can indeed be tricky due to include differences between old
and new kernels. I fixed up many of these for the Amiboot build, but due to the
lack of a m68k-mint-gcc crosscompiler I never tried to build Ataboot.
M68kboot really should be fixed to use its own copy of known-working kernel
includes, but since no one really recompiles it, no one seems to care ;-)
For now, your best bet is to fix up includes when you encounter problems. I'm
even willing to check in fixes if you send patches (CC'd to the list, please).
