Even on an 060 X takes several hours (11?) to build.

Yup, the problem is not the time it takes, remember, m68k was released with
Debian2.0, the problem are packages which fail to build (esp when they fail
after many hours...).
I dont think we would need many weeks if we had to recompile 600 packages,
there are some m68k machines which are not on the net, some fast m68k
machines. Its only so unecessary for m68k, since we are not affected by the
i386 problem (AFAIK)...
