Certainly not, but then there's no reason that software which works on
powerpc shouldn't do the same on m68k either. AFAICT the problem with
m68k is that the port in general and the toolchain in particular are no
longer well maintained.

Sure, a 386 is still perfectly usable as a router, e.g. I fail to see
the connection to m68k though.
