I too wanted this for a while until I talked to a coworker about the iifx.
When Apple designed the IIfx they thought the future of computing was to
integrate lots of small processors to handle I/O and the like.  None of
these apple designed processors are documented.  Since they are
undocumented it makes it really hard to program them ;) so NetBSD would be
pretty hard to get working on the hardware.
        My solution was to find a person who had a MacII and traded it for
my IIfx since I really needed a machine that ran Un*x for free.
