Ok, I built a m68k-linux compiler, and attempted:

CC=m68k-linux-gcc AR=m68k-linux-ar RANLIB=m68k-linux-ranlib LD=m68k-linux-ld /home/pbarada/work/cvs-wavemark/cross-linux-tools/gdb-5.0.93/configure --host=m68k-linux

To configure a m68k-linux version of gdbserver to be built on my x86
box.  Unfortunately configure fails.  From gleaning over the output, I
see two things, the first I'm not sure about and the second is a problem:

Created "Makefile" in /home/pbarada/work/cvs-wavemark/cross-linux-tools/obj-crap-linux/m68k-linux/build-gdb using "mt-frag"
/home/pbarada/work/cvs-wavemark/cross-linux-tools/gdb-5.0.93/configure: ./if1747: cannot execute binary file
Configuring intl...
creating cache ../config.cache

I don't think configure should try to run a cross-compiled
executable...

configure: error: Could not find a term library
Configure in /home/pbarada/work/cvs-wavemark/cross-linux-tools/obj-crap-linux/m68k-linux/build-gdb/gdb failed, exiting.

Since I'm not trying to run *gdb* on the target, but just *gdbserver*,
how can I get configure to ignore the missing term library and produce
a proper configuration?  This is the problem I had the last time I did
this, and ended up resorting to configureing it by *hand*.
