I do not doubt m68k is a lot slower. We'll need to find a way to more
intelligently schedule packages that require a lot of space or RAM to
build. The Falcon/CT60 could help a lot there, even more so as soon as we
finally get the ethernet cards for them.

There's work on using the coldfire boards, which would also be a lot

Your mail didn't seem to go through. I've signed it myself now and it

down the pipeline, so we can shunt it to the right machine to deal with
