SoftFPU will not help for the actual BSD system since all it does is
patch into SANE.
There is hope for the 040 in that I have a Quadra 700, now, and plan to
get that working asap.  I am somewhat busy at work, now, and start
summer school and move soon, so BSD is at a low priority this month...  :-(

There is hope, though ;-)  I don't know when we'll have working FPU
emulator, but I do know that 610's can be upgraded to a full 040 if
that helps.
