How about the new Zylin CPU.

... That said ....
But i can't do a FPGA board at home (multilayer).

That's why i think the idea of using the STM32F4-Discovery board , 
or even an Arduino (both around $20). 
With a "Baseboard" that can be etched at home or ordered somewhere. 
Would be a lot more interesting , for a normal hobbyist. 

A lot of the "nice offers" from BatchPcb etc. is not optimal , for 
European nuts (im in Denmark). 
Partly due to 25% VAT , but mostly the handling fee that the Post/Mail is
allowed to charge for handling the VAT (in DK it's $25) + the 25% VAT.

So a solution where the parts could also be bought in EU , would be nice.
