FWIW, I am using it for development on 5.4/amd64. Its behaving well for
me at the moment. I don't use either Eclipse or Netbeans though.
I don't have much feedback on how well it works under heavy load in a
production environment other than it has a problem on FreeBSD 4.x (which
there is a patch for). I believe there were some folks using it
successfully in production on 5.x/amd64, although there are a couple of
gotchas with the build on amd64 at the moment.
Just remember this is patchset 1, its bound to have a few rough edges.
