The best thing to do would be to add another m68k-rtems trrget of the
form m68k-rtems-elf. This appears to be the convention folloed by the
linux community to handle their transitions. In the long run,
m68k-rtems-coff needs to be there also. m68k-rtems can alias one or the
other. For now, it would alias m68k-coff.
This would have to be done to all packages in the toolset -- gcc,
binutls, and newlib.
