Good news.

? crest runs stable as do most of the build daemons but you have
access to the unstable chroot as do all other developers with
"dchroot unstable".  Most debugging tools are installed; if you
need something else, writing m68k-build@nocrew.org or me will get
it installed.  The user unstable chroot was current yesterday
except for a buggy binutils and bash.

I'm in touch with that emotion.  However it's not as slow as
you might think.

We have another '060 loaned to Debian by Robert Hardy.  The gcc
and glibc folk can have this to themselves for a while if they
want.  Again, a stable install in base and an unstable chroot.
If you don't need it I'll be posting in a day or two to see if
someone is interested in admining it.
