As a way to get a compiler, it's more difficult than untarring the one 
from kernel.org, which was the effort I've been willing to invest so far.

I would consider installing the Debian Testing compiler in the form of a 
container, if one was available.

Or I could just update my cross-compiler build scripts again, but that 
solution doesn't get the upstream project much closer to the ideal 
solution, i.e. a convenient, reliable "reference" compiler.

That would require supported compiler and distro releases. Certainly 
Debian's gcc-5-m68k-linux-gnu or gcc-6-m68k-linux-gnu packages are good 
candidates for building a container, and time permitting, I would 
willingly test them and isolate and report any bugs I found.
