I don't know of a Linux port for fido either. The fido-elf issue in binutils is
academic (FPU emulation). So, I think we agree that a GCC targeting m68k-linux
should not build fido multilib variants.

Well, CPU32 is supported by the m68knommu Linux kernel, and apparently glibc
has been built
for m68k-uclinux:
"It has been done, but in practice no one uses it." said Greg Ungerer in

Perhaps the issue with libgfortran on CPU32 is also academic. But academic or
not, binutils needs to be fixed for CPU32 because gas behaviour doesn't agree
with the man page (adding -m68881 should not be necessary). This appears to be
a regression.

The solution is to disable fido and not CPU32, if (as you say) the binutils you
are using is able to build libgfortran for CPU32. Mainline GCC needs to be
fixed to omit fido multilib variants from m68k-linux builds.
