	My kernel config file contains

options         CHILD_MAX=150   # Manually adjusted, sys/syslimits.h tweaked

	Unless I also tweak sys/syslimits.h this will break the compilation.

	This is so that a single user ID can have more than the default
	80 simultanous processes.

	See above.

	Surround the definition of CHILD_MAX in sys/syslimits.h with an
	#ifndef / #endif pair (?)
