Was that "Why not use the mac to netboot NetBSD/sun3 onto the 3/110 to
provide a OS environment on the sun3 to work from", or "why not boot
NetBSD/amd64 on the mac (or in virtual box on the mac) to provide an
easy environment to run a pre-built tme binary"?

Alternatively someone with a running sun3 box should be able to run
off a small disk image you could dd directly onto your SD card to give
an easy bootstrap

Interestingly the NetBSD/sun3 install ISO images should be directly
bootable on a sun3

Just sayin... :)
