You could at least tell us you also posted this question last August:

Apparently it's supposed to be 2GB.

Here's an informative reply from Peter:

Is this an amd64 machine?  Better yet, at least get us a dmesg...


Off topic: Peter, I just sent a patch to Christos Zoulas to teach FILE 
about the new __FreeBSD_version scheme.  He said it would be in FILE 
4.09 (FILE 4.08 included some fixes but will be broken again with 4.10+ 
and will give misleading information after 5.x goes -STABLE).
