I had several problems after I reduced my kernel. An additional make clean
solved these problems.

I went back to my old behaviour habits (i.e. system administration without
thought), downloaded binutils and gcc, configured, build and installed
binutils (with --target=m68k-atari-netbsd), configured, build and installed
gcc (again, with --target=m68k-atari-netbsd) and it works (more or less).
The more or less part: The cross-compiler produces static binaries where
the native compiler produced dynamically linked binaries. Seems I have
to spend some time on reading the documentation ... :)
