No difference, so I'm glad to hear you found some problems to fix.

I've never fiddled with 'nice' before, so I want to make sure I'm using
it properly.  What I did was this:
# nice -n +5 sh
# make buildworld

Is that what you intended?  And would the result be different than doing
'nice -n +5 make buildworld' ?
