I had assumed your source was called newlib, so building a newlib-source
package would just have been a task of adding a new package.
So imho the best way would be to use the newlib source to build a
newlib-source package and also build newlib-m68hc1x from it. I guess the
embeddian people also would have a use for it. We need it for Lego
