There is the hsmathlibs which are probably the fastest math libraries but they are not free.
If you are using AmigaOS 3.9, then the new IEEE math libraries in LIBS: may already be patched for the FPU. They would be for a 68040 or 68060 but I don't know about a 6888x. It may be possible that ThoR's Mu libraries would be necessary for this also.
Code that uses a 68881 or 68882 FPU directly should work without math libraries and is faster than using math libraries. In a few cases, code compiled for direct FPU use on a 68040 or 68060 will work depending on the compiler used.
