Mensagem:      Yes, according to Skeat's English Etymology they are exactly cognate, along with SW  and Ic. 'fast' and G. 'fest'. There is also the modern english usage of 'fast' to mean abstinence from food, from the AS. verb 'faestan', cognate with Du. 'vasten' and G. 'fasten'.

Of course, then there is "vast" and "vastly" in english, which have quite different meanings, from  F. 'vaste'  via L. 'uastus'. Therefore we would expect to find a verb in Portuguese of similar morphology and meaning.
