The sad fact is that the 6800 family simply can't support a C compiler
efficiently.  The most you could hope to do is bring up a cross-compiler
running under UN*X, and even then the resulting code would be pretty bad.
The 6800 is a lot better than the 6502 for high-level language support,
but still isn't powerful enough.  Your best bet is to upgrade to a 6809,
which doesa very nice job of supporting decent high-level languages.
