MCL should run on the 540c ok if you add the missing-FPU patch.
Get it from cambridge.apple.com:/pub/mcl/patches/missing-FPU/

In any case, you should upgrade to MCL 2.0.1. The upgrade is in
this same directory, or you can order it from APDA for $25
(includes a cdrom and three diskettes).

I'm afraid I have no benchmark info.
