I think I'd formed the impression from somewhere or other (probably
related to Debian m68k) that it was that there were no relevant drivers
for m68k that had been ported to ALSA so there wasn't much point
building it.  I could be misremembering, though.

With regard to ColdFire I'm guessing that this is an embedded system?
If so you might want to have a look at working with the ASoC framework
(see sound/soc and Documentation/sound/alsa/soc).
