Sorry for the delay, I cut a toybox release last night and now I'm
working on an aboriginal linux release using it, aimed at the end of the
month. (Trying to catch up with the kernel before _they_ get another
release out and I fall further behind...)

It looks like many of them are actually the same error. I'll try to take
a look this weekend.

I not that m68k is _now_working_, at least with Laurent Vivier's
qemu-m68k fork in the q800 branch. (Not sure I've checked the changes in
yet, but... working on it.)

Alas, it's a bit like sh4 in that it only has 128 megs of ram instead of
256, so if you try to build linux from scratch under it the ./configure
stage triggers the OOM killer. (I should extend the init script to set
up a swap file if there isn't enough memory...)

Thanks for the heads up, I'm not ignoring you just juggling many balls.
