Here's the changes I've come up with so far [sorry, no diffs]:

slink1.needed needs:
* xserver-fbdev
* {atari,amiga,mac}-fdisk
* {atari,amiga,mac}-bootstrap
  [amiga and mac don't exist yet, but they'll be needed whenever they
  are in the distribution]
* vmelilo

[Anything else essential for m68k that wouldn't be available by
default?  Michael?  Roman?]

slink1.useful needs:
* kernel-image-2.0.3[36]-{amiga,atari,mac,vme}
  [mac, vme and 2.0.36 images don't exist yet but will soon; if we do go
  with 2.0.36 images we'll probably drop the 2.0.33 ones]
* sendmail
  [I think someone else already mentioned this; it's a matter of
  preference but IMHO a lot of people will probably want to use
  sendmail as their MTA... it's the only MTA I ever can get to work
  right with my dialup setup]

Also, the -J switch to mkhybrid needs to be disable-able without
editing the slink_cd script.  IMHO Joliet support is non-essential
except on i386 (commentary about real OSes being able to understand
Rock Ridge (at least if they're > 8.3) deleted to save space).

du -s main/binary-m68k = 663551; so it will definitely be split over
two CDs.  And that doesn't include whatever disks-m68k will take up
plus contrib, non-free and non-US.
