Ummm, on my Dual P-III (650MHz with 524988416 Bytes), my current Seti
efficiency is 5.35 CpF. That's a tad high/slower than an Ultra Sparc IIi
according to their stats. So, it would appear that being SMP is hurting my
performance a bit. Unless that is that you meant to run a seti instance for
each CPU? And this reminds me of how "make -j3 bzlilo" is slower than
"make -j2 bzlilo".
