Current should be faster, but I'm not sure how much faster. Current
on all platforms benefited from Andy's work on SMP &co and also has
few minor things not pulled up to netbsd-4 yet (e.g. cache flush
routines don't have to run on P2 - so system time goes down quite a
bit for e.g. compile jobs).
Another thing is that instead of rtk(4) it should be possible to use
re(4) that supports 8139C+ chip found in landisk, which should get you
better network perfromance, but last time I tried it )with my nfs-root
usl-5p) it would wedge. Unfortunately I didn't have time to

Currently netbsd releng build farm only has amd64 machines.
Unfortunately there's a bug in sh3 gcc that prevents it from compiling
as a cross-compiler on 64-bit hosts, so all-64-bit releng farm can't
build any of sh3 ports. :(
