This is a tough problem.

Gas format is odd, well different. And because the documentation
covers so many machine types it is hard to decypher what you
should do for a particular machine.

Note: There is a command line switch for gas in the m68k section,
--mri that turns on "MRI" mode. This may solve a lot of your
problems! (But probably not all)
