Ok. That worked a bit better and grabbed quite a bit of memory.

    total memory = 767 MB
    avail memory = 433 MB
    using 6144 buffers containing 312 MB of memory

A "du /usr/pkgsrc" still doesn't run that blindingly fast the second
time around though.  There is still plenty of disk activity.  I am
guessing that this is due to the disk not being mounted "noatime".
