Did your build ever finish? I've been playing with NetBSD/vax myself
lately on a VS4000/90 with 80MB RAM. I built world from multiuser mode
via "script" with output going to the script file and over a telnet

script -c "/usr/bin/time -l ./build.sh -O /usr/obj -T /usr/tools -u
distribution" ${LOGFILE}

/etc/mk.conf has:

.ifdef BSD_PKG_MK
# userspace builds (use default $DBG flags)
COPTS += -pipe
# use CPUFLAGS when building cross-tools

It took just over 6 days to complete (6 days, 12 minutes, 41 seconds).
If I had done the build from single-user mode with, e.g. cron and ntpd
disabled, and logged to a file only, I'm sure it would've taken a bit
less than 6 days. I'm going to wait to do another build until after
I've gotten GCC 4.5 working and fixed a few performance issues I
discovered (more on that in a separate email to the list).
