For what it's worth, I have run several systems with 4GB RAM on
FreeBSD/i386 6.3. The only i386 I have left with this much RAM was
recently upgraded to 7.0; the rest of my large RAM systems run FreeBSD/
I didn't see anything obviously bad in your kernel config.
By the way, thanks for making FreeNAS... I use it on my home NFS/AFP
server to great success... the only thing I wish it included was the
amrstat binary to test my LSI RAID controller status (I just copy it
from another 6.3 system I have and it works).
