Thanks for this. Considering all this it rather sounds like nobody is 
really willing to make some compromises and instead the bars are raised 
so high to weed out the smaller/slower ports.
Using CF like this to match some otherwise impossible requirements would 
be more like applying an infusion to a port, which has been declared dead 
by others. If Debian is not willing or able to provide a home for m68k, 
it's maybe time to move on and look for alternatives. I guess we could 
debate this forever, my point is that this runs contrary to my interests 
in this port, which is to keep it working as good as technically possible.
I can understand the sentiments and I know everyone puts a lot of work 
into this, which I appreciate, but IMO it's the wrong solution to make the 
compromises at this level.

bye, Roman
