this has to do with the value exportd by <sys/param.h>, not
the value set by the build.

since these binaries are always going to report the same value,
i suspect that fixing arm/param.h to report the right value
depending on the compiler options would fix the problem without
having to patch every program that uses them to use sysctl on
