nobody seems to care.  gcc started emitting floating point insructions
that MATH_EMULATE couldn't handle as early as NetBSD-3.0 .

I think reintroduction of an 80386 port with the necessary feature-
stripping and minimization would be a good exercise, but it could happen
on just about any platform.  (vax, pmax, and various 68k ports
immediately come to mind.)
