Most of the ports' install notes recommend a swapspace of 2*ram.
On a 4mb machine this would give <12Mb of virtual memory, which
seems very tight. Running X+netscape on a 8mb machine with 16mb
swap also seems optimistic :)
Given NetBSD's swap allocation method the 2*ram does not seem
to apply any more.
Would it make more sense to recommend ram+swap figures for
each of the four options (advise, with X, needed, with X).
(something of ther order of 32M,64M,16M,32M ?)
