i did the same thing.

my vaxstation3100 managed about 1300keys/sec for rc5-64. for comparison, 
my diskless 386sx16 machines running linux nfs-root get about
5800keys/sec, and (something a bit more recent) my k6-233 manages about

i kinda gave up messing with it when i saw how slow it was. never mind.
