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.

Fix build on GCC-based systems by adding compiler:c++11-lang to USES:

  CMake Error in CMakeLists.txt:
  Target "test_line" requires the language dialect "CXX11" (with compiler
  extensions), but CMake does not know the compile flags to use to enable it.

[NEW PORT] print/brlaser: Brother laser printer driver

brlaser is a CUPS driver for Brother laser printers.

Although most Brother printers support a standard printer language such
as PCL or PostScript, not all do. If you have a monochrome Brother laser
printer (or multi-function device) and the other open source drivers
don't work, this one might help.
