For me - 3% after about a half a year; the NetBSD portion
is nearly full last 4 months and I run out of all space several times
(I mean all as all - even the 10% spare root-only space). The
fragmentation seems to stay constant now.

My other computer has about 2% fragmentation after about three
years -- this one has plenty of free room though.

Both are desktop computers only though.
