Even since 4.5.0, there have been been changes to the configure and make
infrastructure.  Since 4.0.0, there have been even more changes in the
build infrastructure and numerous cleanups to BSPs in general into 
increase shared code.

You need to redo the Makefiles and configure infrastructure and then
for use of shared procedures where formerly BSPs had their own copies.
at a simple m68k bsp like sim68000.

I do not know how long this would take you but I would think it was only
a few days of consulting to get it to compile again.  A while longer to
test it.  Let me know if you want someone to take care of it for you.
