I just replaced it with $ROOTCMdD seems the right way to do it. sudo was
working fine for me and I guess nobody would have ever noticed, who else
besides Richard is trying to build on m68k?

Where will it be downloaded to? Can try that at home.

No, I am not going to add things there. As much as I'd like m68k to be
documented, I do not have the time for that. If you see me adding things
there, you should disable my CVS access.

I was more hoping that, by threatening to complete remove m68k
documentation, some m68k users would (again) wake up and help us out a bit
or a bit more. New users are much better suited to document the installation
process, long time users usually install blindly.
