OK, I'm in chroot now and this night glibc build completed successfully 
(took about 16 hours).

Problems so far: gcc didn't build unless I left out --enable-threads 
configure option. With this option, genattr always failed. Any clues why 
this happens?

I've also set C(XX)FLAGS to "-g0 -O2 -m68060", no problems with this so 
far (wasn't brave enough to use -O3, though)

I expect to run into problems with 2.4.x kernel, because up to 2.4.9, I 
wasn't able to build a booting kernel for Amiga on the installed 
Debian/m68k 2.2. So for now I will stick to 2.2.17 sources from debian, 
which cause no problems.

I hope to complete installation by the end of this week.
