No misconfiguration.

NetBSD defaults to V6 CPU optimizatin.  The V6 doesn't have hardware
floating point.

I think they've started shipping NetBSD with a dynamic linker that picks
a CPU dependent version of the important libraries, at least on SPARC.
That partially solves the problem.

To really optimize though, you'll want to do a make world.

That can take awhile on an SS5... :)
