That's not unreasonable - the performance killer will be your lack

One thing I have to wonder - how compatible is 'make buildworld' with
multiple build processes(e.g. 'make -j4 buildworld')? I know some
makefiles don't get along well with the -j parameter, but if
buildworld is okay with it, this may offer a way to keep the processor
busy rather than waiting for disk access all the time, which could
make things faster, especially on such low-memory machines.
