In addition to other suggestions, I found on my old machine that
configuring an /etc/malloc.conf made a huge difference with
5.0-CURRENT (otherwise its performance was much worse than 4.x).  
I used 

/etc/malloc.conf -> H<

I believe this should make a difference only if the machine is low on
memory, which perhaps your machine is, since it's old.
