You don't.  It's imbedded in the source and cannot be changed.  Well, you
COULD get a larger disk!  Or, on the other hand you could kill the smgr.
And, as an afterthought, you could run mgr instead of the 'luser agent'.
I recently installed the software driver version and can't wait until I
can get the daughter board.  BTW, even with the software driver, mgr is
still a faster windowing system than X on my Sun 3/50!!!
