FreeBSD would still be a lot faster, but NetBSD is lighter. And I
wouldn't pay too much attention to those people suggesting Gentoo,
in the same league because it's still glibc vs.

You can have a complete server installation in 30-40 MB with NetBSD.

The BSD's are really excellent for bring such old hardware back to life.
