On systems not using assesmbler optimized code in openssh/openssl
and using gcc <= 3.3.x. For sparc systems especially since by default
older NetBSDs used v7 instructions only - 2.0 and -current do runtime
selection of parts of libc.

For a good comparision you need to make realy sure that you are using
the same ciphers and key lengths.

Sure. I've disabled v1 everywhere. But believe me, this is most likely
the real explanation of the perceived difference.
