Good, are you going to add this as [STRATEGY]?

I'm talking to Marcelo right now and will contact the m68k build crew
to warn them. The m68k package is one version behind. I'm trying to
build it on my own right now. Since it takes about 50minutes on an intel
box it won't make it in 20minutes on a heavy loaded Amiga. I'll check
the results of the compilation when I come back, if it was successful
I'll upload the package.

Yeah. I'm leaving in 30 minutes for a meeting, I'll move the files out
of my home directory before I leave.
