You are aware that the instruction set differs between ColdFire and
"classic" m68k? I've been working on modifying the toolchain so that a
common subset would be used for Debian, allowing it to work on both
"classic" hardware and ColdFires, but that work hasn't been finished yet
(in fact, it hasn't made much progress, since I'm currently on this all
by myself). If you're trying Debian binaries, then obviously this won't
work; if you want to run Linux, you need to use the toolchain from the
Freescale BSP.
