That's the Voyager I used to have, isn't it?  I remember finding that
after I got OpenBSD installed on it, there was no room to unpack the
ports tree, and just deleting the partially-unpacked ports tree to have
free space on the disk was taking many hours.  That was not just a small
disk (about 500MB, iirc), it was a small, SLOOOOOOOOOOOW disk.
