Hmm, if bzip2 can't saturate the CPU, I would say it's probably waiting
for disk reads/writes.

FreeBSD uses CVS, which can also produce such a logfile. But I think
that you would have to install the complete CVS repository to generate
such a changelog. Besides, if you are not a programmer, would the
checkin comments really mean anything to you?

It looks like one of your disk controllers is sharing an interrupt with
another device (network card? can't find a skc device, only sk). That
might have something to do with your problem. Try disabling that device,
and see if your troubles disappear. If so, you could try to add
a device hint to have the skc device use another free interrupt
line. See device.hints(5).
