How did you do the switch?  I tried this a while ago and couldn't see
any reasonable difference.  I probably did not change the pkgsrc shell

Out of curiosity: have you tried to do a native build of that package,
out of pkgsrc's control?  Last time I tried (on a NetBSD host), the
overhead of the wrappers was significant.
