I would be very interested in FreeBSD support for a 68k and PPC target.
Now, as I think about it, getting the cross development environment working
on FreeBSD was pretty straightforward.  I think there was just a minor issue
w/ an older version of makedoc on my system... as I recall (?).
I've just never made a "port" before.. and that might take some time before
its done.
