gcc-4.0 was extremly brittle and should never has been made the default
compiler in sid. It was not working correctly on i386 let alone on
others platforms. I don't remember a similar issue with any other sid
compiler. I spent more working around compiler issues than I ever had

I am quite glad we moved to gcc-4.1, but gcc-4.0 was a total waste of
time and certainly contributed for a great part for the current state
of m68k. Given the porter team are not responsible for the choice of
tool chains version for their architecture, they should not have to bear
the consequences.

So I urge you to give Debian/m68k a fair chance.
