I'm all for dynamic / and dynamic /bin/sh, but this doesn't even come close to what I observed on my systems. I see anywhere from 15% to 20% slowdown in buildworld, depending on how bad my hardware already is. I posted my most recent numbers earlier. It's difficult to get lots of these numbers, unfortunately, because it takes a good 6-8 hours just to complete one build. But the numbers are fairly consistant across the different degrees of old crappy hardware I have. -Mike
