Even with current? It seems to have grown a lot. Even FreeBSD 11 on my
atmel boards, the 32MB ones can't really do much of anything (though a
custom /etc/rc.d might be usable). The 64MB ones I have troubles logging
into without disabling a ton of stuff. And FreeBSD-current is even larger.
Are you using a custom rc.d in this setup?
