Funny you should say that, while a CVS checkout of all of the NetBSD

performance, or did we only just get faster computers, while the code

Because I doubt you can claim a 10 time size increase of the source code

If you install NetBSD-2 on your VAX-8650, does a checkout of the current
source tree take more or less time than checking it out when running
NetBSD 5 on the same machine?  If you're going to claim that one version
of the OS is slower than another you should have them perform the same

On my list of things to test. Unfortunately the cooling of the computer hall broke a while back, so all such testing came to a halt.
