AMD64 is a modern architecture. M68k is an architecture that saw its prime 
many years ago. AMD64 also has a much larger user base considering that most 
of the m68k machines I know of are more toys than workhorses. Also, I think it 
could be that the Debian folks saw a strategic advantage is shipping a more 
normal version of Debian for the AMD64 arch.
