Hi Frank

 As follows:

 Mem: 96M Active, 286M Inact, 224M Wired, 213M Buf, 1368M Free
 Swap: 4094M Total, 4094M Free

Note that this is FreeBSD system is installed in a Vmware VM. No swap
partition is configured as I expected the system to run entirely with RAM
as managed by the Vmware hypervisor and resource management technology.
Note that this machine is currently doing nothing else other than my
attempts at make buildworld.
