crt0 not built for m68k target?

If you look at you will notice a variable: have_crt0. 
This variable is set by default to yes if 1. you have a sys_dir and 2. 
you don't specify: have_crt0=no  When this variable is set to yes, the 
libc/sys expects to copy crt0.o up the tree.

If your sys directory builds crt0.o conditionally, then you will have to 
modify your to conditionally set this variable to no.
