As far as I can tell, the sources in the last version of the package
aren’t even used to build it, because the “source” package ships the
binaries for m68k-bare plus the source one can use to manually build
it… I did have plans to build them with gcc-m68k-mint, but never got
around to actually do so.

But yes they should be a start, just don’t expect them to correspond
to any binaries you got from anywhere, rather rebuild them first and
try them, and only if that doesn’t work for you, hack ’em.

<igli> exceptions: a truly awful implementation of quite a nice idea.
<igli> just about the worst way you could do something like that, afaic.
<igli> it's like anti-design.  <mirabilos> that too… may I quote you on that?
<igli> sure, tho i doubt anyone will listen ;)
