And this solution would make it possible to turn off the usage of
crosscompilation when there's no need to do so, i.e. m68k keeps up by
it's native buildds. This can reduce crosscompiler issues.

Earlier this year there was a discussion about implementing concurrency
levels in builds, similar to those that make-kpkg uses (dunno, I don't
use make-kpkg ;). But when happened this discussion? Hmmm...
