Sure. I think the point is the number of processes etc,
but I don't know other proper benchmark. :-)

sun3x had a bug which caused memory leak in pmap_destroy()
(that called free() for pmap structures) and then
"out of space kmem_map" panic, but I could reproduce
it only during "make build", which took over 5 days.
I intend building kernel is just a subset of it.
