While porting RTEMS to a funny Dragonball VZ based screenphone I run
into the same trouble. The default processor is the 68020, but this
change has obviously a side effect and the lib lacks support for the
68000. As no one will use such an expensive processor, try to change it
back! ;)
I fiddled in gcc/config/m68k/m68k-none.h
There You will find something like 


change it to M68K_CPU_m68000 and build the gcc again.
This is obviously no good solution, but it should work.

The next ´tools related´ problem I ran into was gdb & the old HP stub
(found in the efi68k stuff). After running into an breakpoint, the
programmcounter will point _behind_ the trap instruction, so continue
will fail. But as I did not apply the rtems patch to gdb I do not know
if this is already fixed. So I would be interested in knowing if this is
still a problem on the 68000.
