Yeah, the cliffhanger was r27066, after that I got an Amiga compiler
binary. And then it also needed r27070 before it started to work. (And I
have an unfinished quick & dirty RTL patch which I still didn't commit,
which is required to build the compiler (an Exec unit), but that's
possible to work around if you disable the HASAMIGA parts in

Well, there's a patched QEMU which - in theory - can run 000 and 020 code.
I tried it for some simple 020 bins, and that worked, I'm going to try to
run the whole testsuite with it (an also '000).

The additional nice thing if it works that it's much easier to get
various C libs to test with a full 68k (for example from Debian-m68k)
than Coldfire.
