You will like it more and more! :-)

Mmmh, i didn't understand well your question... do you mean that you'd
like to use the ram as WRKOBJDIR?
in order to do that (i'm using this example everyday on my Eee PC 900
with NetBSD 5.0.1: its SSD is pretty slow and this configuration speed
up the compilation a lot) you need for example mount /tmp as tmpfs
(in this case I use 256MB, 1GB of ram for me is a lot :-)):
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs rw,-s256M
Hope this helps and enjoy NetBSD Curzon!
