Thanks for the fast response Ignatios. I've started vmstat right after
the init process and since neither init nor vmstat executes fpu code
I suspected the kernel. But you are right there should be no fpu
code there since it's compiled with -msoft-float. Yes, vmstat reports
fpiemu and did not report any fpdemu or fpeaemu yet, even after
running netbsd over night compiling packages and running several

As for me, netbsd is running better now than with the standard 030
binaries and I'm not really worried about the remaining fpiemu hits.
I was just curious if I could produce a netbsd for the 060 only and 
omit the M060SP software support from the kernel.
