  I am using an Amiga with 68060@50Mhz myself. My last GCC bootstrap on
  that machine was done in 1999 for GCC 2.95.2 and it took several hours.
  I never tried to boostrap newer GCC version because I fear that it would
  take much too long. I only did a non-optimized non-bootstrap build of
  3.2.2 with 2.95.2 as build compiler on that machine. I have to cross-build
  GCC3 and newer to use them on this machine. Anything else wouldn't work.
  FWIW, I experienced a constant slowdown of the C compiler with every
  release since 2.7. While C is still usable, C++ with templates is not.
