Cool, I'll try NetBSD 3.1 and then upgrade to -current and bench that as well.
Take care with that, they're going through /their/ heavy threading
changes now (a few years late to the party, but they'll probably do a
good clean job). I don't know if it's in a bad state or if it will
affect a 1-CPU benchmark at all, but worth keeping in mind. FreeBSD
5.x used the "we're threading" line as the reason/excuse for all of
its stability and performance problems, and a lot of people were
comfortable with that.
