One more thing.
After NetBSD and TCX acceleration, I tried NextSTEP, which needs the patches marked + above. Alas, this is not enough to make it run. Maybe it is because QEMU SCSI disk and ESP emulation are too fast.
Did the NeXtCube use Open Firmware?
Not likely. It was m68k based. It had something called the 'NeXT ROM Monitor'. See http://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/next68kfaq/ for example for some info on that.
NeXTstep for the powerpc likely ran on open firmware machines, although I don't know that for sure.
