Actually, answering my own question - a quick back of the packet calculation suggests about 8,500 packages in OpenBSD, vs 65,000+ for Debian - although it does depend how you count. And there are a lot more 'unofficial' Debian repos and packages, too... There's no doubt that OpenBSD includes the most popular.
