I don't think this will be a problem.  We currently have a GPL math 
emulator in our kernel, just not enabled by default

options         GPL_MATH_EMULATE        #Support for x87 emulation via
                                        #new math emulator

If it can be loaded as a kernel module it will be even less of a 
problem, but I don't know the specifics about the program in question.
