2.4 may never support Macs, but 2.6 starts to look reasonably good on them.
It probably won't be ready for Sarge, but d-i runs on 2.2 (I installed one
of my machines with it, last week) so we can always drop 2.2 support later.
Anyway, for purposes of security updates, part of the problem seems to be
that m68k compilation is somewhat slow. To fix that, we can either accept
that $SLOW_ARCH's security uzpdates will be late, or cross-compile the
kernel on $FAST_ARCH.
