Can anyone help me figure out how to make use of the missing GB?

this looks like a 32 bit binary to me.

You either need a 64 bit binary or you need to enable PAE.

Just build a custom kernel for 64 bits.

Ahh... To do this, do I just specify the CPUTYPE in the /etc/make.conf

No. Add options SMP to GENERIC or use the SMP conf file that's already there (and includes GENERIC). Then recompile the kernel per the handbook.

he still has to set the CPU type also in this config file to amd64.
