We haven't taaught it about the m68k relocs yet, AFAIK.  Truthfully, very
little has been done on the m68k front, and I have been intending to
address that.

: Also, how is powerpc doing? Will it work with the gcc/dist binutils?

Ah, no, the in-tree binutils (2.8.1 based) will not work on powerpc.  `Wait
for a 2.9.1 import.'
