Given that the maximum amount of RAM on m68k is 512 MB, I doubt this is
feasible. In particular, I would have to add a disk explicitly for swap to
my machine, or convert a data partition (with 512 MB RAM, I get by using
100 MB swap easily).

The pure compile time on the last arm build wasn't that outrageous -
what's the RAM size and CPU speed of toffee?
