X86 cpu without a FPU - Vortex86sx

I am trying to build  FreeBSD 5.5 or 6.3 to run on a board that uses the DMP
Vortex86sx SOC. This chip looks like a 486sx, no FPU. Is there a way to make
a build that uses software emulation for the FPU, like the old days?  I do
not see anything in the .cong file that helps. I am trying to end up using
pfSense with it. Or what old version could work with this chip?


Thanks for any help.
