1) I can't get /usr/local/etc/rc.d/*sh to work.
I don't have any ideas to offer on this.
2) Building kernels/worlds is MUCH slower than under 4.X. A kernel used to take around an hour; it's taking about 4 under 5.1 (Cyrix 166mhz/64Mb RAM). Is there still a lot of debugging code in 5.1 which could slow things down?
a) I assume you've read /usr/src/UPDATING in your 5.x system, which explains some settings that you can look at if you are wondering about performance.
b) the 5.x-series uses gcc 3.3.x for its compiler, while freebsd-4.x has stayed with gcc 2.94. gcc 3.3.x is definitely much slower at *compiling* code. If your only performance measurement is buildworld and buildkernel, then this difference in compile times is the reason for most of the slowdown that you're seeing.
