That's odd because my system has those spim files.

cpu% pwd
cpu% ls -l
--rw-rw-r-- M 683 theowner sys 1656 May 10 22:46 float.h
--rw-rw-r-- M 683 theowner sys 2249 May 10 22:46 math.h
--rw-rw-r-- M 683 theowner sys  366 May 10 22:47 stdarg.h
--rw-rw-r-- M 683 theowner sys  991 May 10 22:47 ureg.h
cpu% diff /spim/include/ape/stdarg.h /mips/include/ape/stdarg.h

For reference, my system was installed with Community vs
Infrastructure and then I used sysupdate for the latest release.

It might just be time to retire the 68k series.  In my own recent
quest to find Raspberry Pi alternatives, the few 68k based chips still
produced seem to be stripped down models, often lacking MMU, used for
micro controller applications.  Fujitsu still makes sparc based chips,
but says they will be ending production soon.  And I wasn't able to
find anything in mass production based on open sparc.

Even though the Mips parent company has said they are switching to
risc-v, there are still several companies manufacturing mips cpus, and
a couple Chinese companies taking their license and expanding on them.
A new project I found interesting that used a Mips chips was this;
