1. At this level, the code for all the m68k-based ports *should* be the
same, and there should be only one copy of it (not N for N ports).
My previous post to this list suggested how we might do this.

2. gcc2 in NetBSD is basically gcc-2.4.5.  Basically all I did to gcc2
was to modify the PIC code generation slightly.  If gcc-2.5.4 has this
already, that's fine - I haven't looked at gcc-2.5.4 yet.
