You may want to look at what kind of a filesystem you are using.
With a 'standard' Berkeley 'FFS' I get 540+k inodes on a 4 gig partiton,
with a standard 'newfs'. I get a virtually identical 'density' on a 7+gig 
partition (941k inodes).

You show roughly -half- that inode density, which implies different
filesystem characteristics, or a newfs-equvalent with non-default 
parameters.
