I used to do a lot of m68k ROM code development c. 1985-1993...

Yes.  For AmigaDOS...

We rolled our own m68k cross assembler that ran on VMS, twice - one
was a very simple, unsophisticated assembler that just took blocks of
code and banged out a monolithic OBJ, and later, a fancier one with
relocatable blocks and multiple sections that produced more of a
"loader format" for linking multiple entities together.    I have the
source for these but they are definitely K&R C and may have some file
routines that would have to be lightly massaged out of VMS-isms.
