I just tried it out on my 500Mhz 21164A NetBSD machine, and compared
to the native NetBSD client, it seems to do better on everything
except RC5...

distributed.net v2.8002-447 client for DEC Unix:

compared to distributed.net v2.8002-446 client for NetBSD:

Is the Tru64 client using the C core or something?
