Now there is, sorry.

Ok, reading the log explains why it is not working on m68k. The buildd tries
to execute scripts/basic/fixdep from the linux-headers package. And as
somebody else noted before, this does not run on m68k, since it was
(cross-)built on i386, but only the kernel is cross-built, not the binaries.
So it is either the fault of the linux-2.6 package, which does not properly
cross-compile binaries in its packages, or my fault, since I do not want to
wait a week for the packages to compile natively. 

Can we please get this fixed in the kernel-build process? It should be
useful for other arches that cross-compile the kernel, too.
