FreeBSD SoftwareInReview, well, reviews FreeBSD 6.1, and concludes: "Overall I found FreeBSD 6.1 to be another step in the right direction, and I think it's encouraging that there weren't any revolutionary base system changes in this release. Sometimes big changes are unavoidable, but historically the FreeBSD team has bungled such leaps as the switch to the ULE scheduler, the introduction of SMP, and the liberation of the base system from the big giant lock. Sometimes you have to stop and make sure that what you presently have is working properly, and it looks like now is that time for FreeBSD. I applaud their efforts with 6.1 and look forward to testing 6.2."

hopefully someone a programmer will get off their fat chuff to fix up the problem ( http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=97240 ) - I can tolerate problems if I were using insane optimisations, but the fact is, the options I chose in my make.conf are very vanilla and shouldn't cause the said problems in the link.

Go fix it yourself.
