	Wow, you've got a fast server!  My main one, this one, is 
	a homebrew i815 from Aug01 that has .75G RAM and runs
	at roughly 700MHz.  Plenty fast for Unix, even loaded to
	4.00+ when I'm doing several things.  

	Anyway, last fall I did a portypgrade -fa on my 600 ports.
	Rebuilding everything took around 5 days.  I'm
	making notes of your suggestions for the next time 
	something goes awry!


	PS: personal note: what's the general reaction to the
	    vitrification plant over by you?  should we offline this?
