060 has no hardware sqrt and trigonometrical functions. It has to be done in software with a library provided by Motorola. So a library call should be actually faster then trapping through f-line.

Yes, but how much faster? Is it worth all the hassle?
IMO trapping thru line_f is the correct way.
The line_F interrupt is created for this purpose.
Motorola's package is free and specially designed to
compensate for the lack of h/w.

You need only 2 kind of programs:
  ALL math by library calls.
  ALL math by line_F.

Obvious and simple.
