I'd have to chime in here with two recommendations:

(1) Try 4.8-STABLE

(2) Try 5.1-CURRENT

With a distinct preference for (1) before (2). Some parts of -CURRENT
have gotten faster, others have gotten temporarily slower (new locks in
place without Giant coming off them yet, which adds overhead).

I'd also check your block sizes for interaction with Postgres and see if
different block and fragment sizes help/hurt. It could be that postgres
would benefit from different tuning parameters on FreeBSD, especially with
newer UFS file systems.
