	If you have the disk space you can compile up a completely
	optimised kernel, userland, and packages for your current cpu.
	    - Install 'devel/cpuflags' from pkgsrc,
	    - Add '.sinclude "/usr/pkg/share/mk/"' to /etc/mk/conf

	Then for the kernel/userland (Assuming 1.6):
	    - Download and extract the NetBSD src
	    - cd /sys/arch/<ARCH>/conf/
	    - config GENERIC
	    - cd ../compile/GENERIC
	    - make && make install
	    - cd /usr/src ; ./
