Actually , running ISC 2.0.2 I am looking for the way to increase the
ulimit SYSTEM wide.

I have a bunch of jobs that come in for uuxqt that are labiring under a
ulimit of 3072 , this is NOT enough as the update a hash file that is
already 1.6 meg big.

I changed /etc/default but that doesnt help, and I have tried doing an
"add tunable paramater" of ulimit 12288 in kconfig, did a build, but
/etc/conf/cf.d/mtune still has the old value ..


Everything I say is Copr.  1990, except the stuff I stole from someone else
and the stuff I don't want responsibility for.
