I think my next install of FreeBSD will be i386 on amd for this reason.

Another thing is that my system feels slow. I can't give numbers,
subjective feeling.

But I don't know if this is more amd64 or more 5.4-stable related.

In former times with much slower CPU (PIII 1 GHz) and slower disks
the system was way more responsive under X11/kde even under load.

Especially if I remember back to FreeBSD 4.x.

And when I got my amd mainboard new, I think the system under
5.4 i386 was quicker/more responsive than after reinstall under 
amd64 native.
