Outdated binaries need to be replaced or removed first, otherwise we
would have binaries in testing with no corresponding source.

The bug report about the m68k build failures suggests that it should
build better with gcc-3.4, which is now in the archive.  You might
consider preparing a package that's configured to use gcc-3.4 as the
compiler on m68k, and getting someone to do a test build for you, so
that the updated package has a chance of getting into sarge without 
requiring ftpmaster intervention.
