two different things might help:

	merged vm/iobuf cache. would remove some dup usage and copying.
	probably would see perf gains to match sunos on that platform.

	improve minfree behaviour. what to swap when you are close to
	thrashing is a good question. surely just tuning the minfree
	requirement down to ensure some "core" code (update/init whatever)
	is around would help?

increasing swap markedly might also have helped, I thought the swap/vm
thing was kinda related for long-lived processes. your make doesn't
sound quite the same as people finding a 60mn named has locked up...
