GNU-Win32 m68K cross compiler

I am have finished  downloading the source for the "GNU-Win32 release
beta 17.1".
The binary is already up end running one my PC (pentium 100, Win NT
I need a compiler for m68K-coff. I want to use it to generate code to
run on US-robotics Pilot.
I have already tried the "Feb 26 - win32-pilot-gcc", but these have 
limits on both code and data size (less than 32K), and I need data and
code size of some hundred Kb.
My idea is to use a standard Gcc m68k cross compiler and standard coff
format (hopefully with no limitations on code and data sizes). And to
put the user interface and OS calls in a smaller program generated with
the already existent win32-pilot-gcc, which have all the necessary
PalmOs library interface up and running, and start the big coff code
from these smaller "win32-pilot-gcc" generated program and have these
two programs interact with each other.
These save me from a lot of work with PalmOS interface libraries.
The problem is that I have never before built a Gcc cross compiler,
assembler and linker from the source. And I have spent a lot of time
reading the readme- and install files, but I do not manage to make these
new compiler.
Is there anyone who can give me a list of the steps I have to go to
build a GNU-Win32 gcc cross compiler, assembler and linker which can
produce  m68k coff format executable files, running on Win NT 3.51
pentium PC?
For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"" with one line of text: "help".
