64-bit Debian.

GCC needs to be integrated into the toolchain:

A "standalone" build of GCC is not helpful as the paths are different.
 When I upgraded to 3.4 I managed to mostly copy across the patches
from https://github.com/cahirwpz/amigaos-cross-toolchain
Most of the other ports I've seen for 68k (including a fork of that
one for gcc6) are an entire repository with the changes integrated.

Whilst that can theoretically be cloned and built within the
toolchain, it's a pain to have to change everything to accomodate it
only to have to switch everything around again when the next gcc port
comes along by somebody else with different ideas on how it should be

My preference would be to go as new as possible so it doesn't have to
be done again for a long time.
gcc6 is here: https://github.com/bebbo/gcc
