OK, I added OpenBSD to the mix as well.  Results are pretty crappy 
with the base default install. With one stream, the box essentially 
live locks. This was just with the stock kernels from the CD.  The 
PCIe bge nics dont work, so I cant test those.  I had a look at their 
errata page and there seems to be some updates to those 2 nics so if 
there is interest I can try compiling in those fixes and re-testing
