That particular one is mostly an interactive machine, although it runs qmail
and has done some NFS. Since I don't have a full-time connection now and it
looks like I won't be able to afford one for at least a year, my server farm
is in disarray and mostly off. However, until recently, one 3/60 was the
main SMTP server for all my domains and also ran a caching instance of BIND
9 providing name resolution for most of my machines. Another one ran a few
MUCK servers. My authoritative DNS servers (BIND 9 again) were a pair of
3/50's. All running NetBSD 1.4.2.

It all depends on what you're used to. It only takes a few hours the first
time, after that most of the objects are build and it's pretty fast.
