Yes.  I just recently brought up an i386 machine with "only" 64M of
RAM.  I had to add swap just to complete a build of the world.  And
that was with 5.2, not 9 or -current.

While my VAXen are currently languishing in storage, I do want to get
at least one of them back in operation.  But it's going to be running
1.4T (well, my mutant 1.4T derivative), not "modern" NetBSD, for just
this reason - among others, yes, but this is the big one.
