The m68k problem is *probably* fixed or downgradable, I'm told. The "relocation
error" bugs that're popping up probably aren't fixed.

Which is a nice thought, but it's simply not true, because there have
always been _other_ bugs open. If it were just a matter of temporarily
partially breaking m68k, that'd be a no-brainer, and would already have
been done. It hasn't been, because it's not. The m68k, arm, etc issues
are not the real problem here.
