Binutils has been mostly ported to m68k NetBSD, I believe much of the work
was included with 2.5.2, however, ld and strip still do not work, as shared
library support is not yet working, and probably will not be for some time,
as I was the one that volunteered and got sidetracked with kids and family,
and have not been able to get back to it. I did a lot of the work,
finishing should not really be too difficult, it's just a matter of sitting
down and doing it.
