I'm asking that myself. I'd like to do comparisons with and without 64-bit
The consensus seems to be that FreeBSD/amd64 is a tad slower then
FreeBSD/i386 because it has to deal with 32 extra bits. The primary
reason to use FreeBSD/amd64 seems to be if you need greater then 4GB
This should give you the speed boost your looking for:
Put that in /etc/make.conf and recompile ports/kern/world.
