I normally reply to the list only, unless I am specifically aware that
the person is not on the list.

No problem.  The above is useful info, actually.

Did you get the FreeBSD port fixed?  The best fix would be to get it to
stop patching the Makefile - I doubt that it actually needs to do that.

Multi-core, yet not 64-bit capable?  Sounds very unusual.

Yes, on a 32-bit system you may try the -sse2i targets, which are
supposed to be faster than plain -sse2 for some hash types.  I don't
know if anyone has actually tested freebsd-x86-sse2i in 1.7.9-jumbo-5,
though; you might be the first to test it. ;-)  So please let us know if
it worked for you or not.
