Actually the Spartan 6 series of FPGA's from Xilinx (eg. XC6SLX16 @ ~ USD $30) will take you over 100MHz easy, but the problem is that there is no 68060 soft core available (yet). The Spartan 6 series also have dedicated memory controller blocks for DRAM (either DDR, DDR2, DDR3, or LPDDR) which might come in handy.

I've looked briefly at the TG68 core (the one yaqube has used to integrate with Minimig in his AGA version), maybe it could be used as a base for a 68060 core, not sure.
