Default How much memory can I save by configging a kernel?

I'm running OpenBSD 5.0 in a KVM VPS. The VPS has 128MB of memory.

I'd like to squeeze as much RAM out of the kernel as possible to free memory. I've already turned off services I don't use.

I'm wondering if I'm wasting my time or if I would be able to actually recover a usable amount. If I'm likely to free 50K, I won't bother. If it might free 5MB, I'll give it a shot.

The VPS is only using one NIC, for example, has no audio, etc.

OpenBSD 5.0 (GENERIC) #43: Wed Aug 17 10:10:52 MDT 2011
cpu0: QEMU Virtual CPU version (cpu64-rhel6) ("GenuineIntel" 686-class) 3.40 GHz
real mem  = 133742592 (127MB)
avail mem = 121569280 (115MB)
