 How is the raw bandwidth of /dev/rsd1e? If that is awful, there's no
 point worrying about ntfs-3g or fuse.
 Also, I'm not sure if fuse filesystems are supposed to be using the
 block device (sd1e) or the raw device (rsd1e). Using the wrong one is
 likely to cause problems.
 In any case if ntfs-3g on Linux doesn't have the same speed problem,
 chances are it is not a pkgsrc issue but a kernel one, or perhaps a
 refuse/perfuse/whateverfuse one.
