unfortunately, netbsd/next68k still doesn't run on turbos.  some work
got done, but i'm not sure if anyone else is still working on the
necessary changes.

if things change and the turbos work, you'll need to run your machine
diskless and use a serial console.  work is getting done on supporting
both the scsi disks and the console, but neither of those are complete.
setting up the necessary stuff isn't too hard - there should be enough
to get you started in

you won't need a cross-compiler; the port is stable enough to build
itself, and that will be a lot easier than cross-compiling.
