Being m68k among the prime candidates for SCC, why shouldn't we ponder
using emulated autobuilders? We have some quite decent and reliable
emulators in our archive for some architectures (i.e., basilisk2 for
m68k [in contrib because of the needed Mac ROMs], hercules for s390),
and they do work reliably. 

(BTW: I have had for a couple of months a Mac Quadra 950 sitting in my
house... It seems to work, but I have had no time to set it up :-/ )
