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.

Turn
IGNORE= "foo now contained in the base system"
into
IGNORE= "is now contained in the base system"
since the code which prints this string prefices it with the package
name.

[MAINTAINER UPDATE] security/freebsd-update

        If `freebsd-update cron` fails due to a lack of internet
        connection, two emails will be sent -- one with the error
        message from fetch(1), and the other from freebsd-update
        reporting that patches could not be downloaded.

        This patch corrects this mis-behaviour and causes a single
        email to be sent in such an event; this will be included
        in a future version of the distfile.

Now that I've had a chance to test it, add sparc64 to the list of approved
architectures for FreeBSD Update.

Excuse for committing without a ports commit bit: I'm the maintainer, and
I didn't want to open a PR for a one-word change.

Remove for-i386-only.  This builds fine on other platforms and appears it
would work just fine if someone were offering security update bits.

update security/freebsd-update: 1.3 -> 1.4
  - Much cleaner code (FreeBSD Update is now a shell script, rather than a
    huge ugly makefile),
  - Better performance,
  - Reduced bandwidth usage when no updates are available,
  - Warnings about files which have been affected by security updates, but
    cannot be updated because they have been modified locally,
  - An "intrusion detection" mode which compares every file which can be
    installed as part of a RELEASE against a (signed) database of known good
    hashes.
