I think it's probably worth mentioning that:
* tgm.netbsd.org -- the machine that is doing the automatic
rougly-daily builds of the NetBSD 1.6 release branch, is
a dual-Athlon machine. Since its last kernel upgrade (to
fix an interrupt-related problem), it has been running for
23 days doing constant source tree builds of multiple
platforms, with a constant load average of about 4.5.
The results of tgm's work, BTW, can be seen at:
* ftp.netbsd.org is in the process of being upgraded, and
3 days ago was temporarily moved to a dual-Athlon machine
while the new permanent machine is being built.
Both machines are Tyan "Guinness" boards with 2 1.5GHz Athlons and
the AMD 762 chipset (and dual on-board 3Com 3c980 10/100 Ethernet!).
