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.

Unbreak news/nn on -current. From patch-submission:
    news/nn doesn't build on -CURRENT because 'cc -E' now emits
    blanks instead of keeping the tabs when generating the intermediate
    makefile, so some unexpansion is called for. Fix $CC & $MAKE
    while we're at it.  Patch works on -STABLE, too.
