Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Due to a misuse of a make(1) command, the WITHOUT_INN_2-X
switch was being completely ignored. This fixes that. I'm
bumping PORTREVISION here because a rebuild could potentially
cause a new dependency list and a different output binary.
