then the question becomes whether or not NetBSD be moving to gcc4 any
time soon...  all the current coldfire work is happening there.

I've been poking with gcc4 at work, and one of the big changes from
3.3.x is that the target masks are now auto-generated.  coldfire is
already taking advantage of this, and I could see benefits to reworking
the existing 68k backends for this too.  (adding actual 68010 support,
for instance...)
