Probably stating the obvious, but - if all m68k machines are that slow
for building debian, has anybody looked at cross-compiling as a viable
alternative? Or are packages generally not cross-compile proof?

If that's the case, wouldn't it still be worth the effort for the truly
big ones such as GCC, X and Glibc?
