I've considered writing a simple gcc wrapper script that, when
executed on a m68k machine, would transfer the relevant files
to a faster machine, cross-compile them, and transfer the
results back. Of course, the transferring would be done most
conveniently via NFS. This method would likely work immediately
for a large number of packages, without the widespread problems
typical with full cross compilation.
