Sounds familiar (2 IPX's, one SS10, one Indy, one Quadra 840AV,
etc). Luckily, I don't use the older ones enough to really care how long
they take to compile kernels...they will probably be done before I log
into them again anyway :-)

Not sure about the m68k or the mipsel, but the current gcc in the
toolchain-source should generate a working kernel, IIRC (Ben, correct me
if I'm wrong please). Would be worth another shot if your faster hardware
(i386?) is fast enough to try a few experiments.
