If dmesg is showing 2GB of RAM detected than chances are it's using it
You'll want to look into some of the sysctl options you can set. see
man sysctl and sysctl -a
Some other options may be NMBCLUSTERS, BUFCACHEPERCENT and options
dealing with shared memory see man options.
Other than that OpenBSD is quite well tuned with just GENERIC. NOTE: a
custom compiled kernel will basically stop the developers from being
able to help you. So mess with the sysctl parameters
