Many m68k ICEs are fixed by GCC 4.1. I intend to switch over quickstep
(the m68k experimental buildd) over to GCC 4.1 soon, so that we could
have a look at whether this fixes it.
To Andreas (GCC port maintainer) and m68k-build: Stephen Marenka and I
both feel that using GCC4.1 in unstable would be an improvement for
m68k, as it fixes a lot of GCC ICEs (though we haven't tested much of
the resulting code at runtime, which is one of the main reasons for the
above suggestion on quickstep). Any objections/opinions?

They are critical for a lot of things, I'd say :-)
(I'll add that I'm happy input is requested from porters this time
around; it wasn't always like that)
Fun will now commence
