Hmm, I usually compile with -O2 -m68060 options and I didn't experience any 
failures due to compiler errors so far. My /etc/mk.conf looks like this:

COPTS+= -O2 -m68060 -Wa,-m68060,-m68851

Kernel and userland compiles just fine with this setting, last tested with HEAD 
trunk some days ago. I don`t use pkgsrc, I usually download the source archives 
directly from their host sites and do the classical ./configure; make install 
thing.  I also set CFLAGS="-O2 -m68060" in my .profile so that ./configure 
automatically generates Makefiles with this two compiler options. All 
applications compiled this way worked for me so far.  So I cannot confirm that 
there is some gcc problem with -m68060 option. -O3 is another story though.
