Maybe, maybe not, but just changing that #define won't have the effect
you want, since there's a bit of machine-dependent code which needs to
be whacked, as well.
In PR 1891 (see http://www.NetBSD.org/cgi-bin/query-full-pr?1891) I
proposed a set of diffs to make having a variable-sied and larger
message buffer easier. They don't actually make message buffer size a
configurable option on the x86, but it's pretty clear looking at the
diffs how to make the message buffer larger.
Anyway, it might be an interesting starting point for you.
