That should help. FWIW, my ss10 (2x SM71, 320 MB RAM, 50 GB diskspace,
netbsd-3) has the following adjustments in the kernel config:

options         BUFPAGES=12000  # 4K pages available for buffer cache
options         NKMEMPAGES=4096 # crashes with default of 1536
options         MAXDSIZ="(1024*1024*1024)" # Bump max data size
                                # (see machine/vmparam.h>)
options         NVNODE=40960    # Default too low
