Set the "maxusers" in your kernel configuration. Then run config(8) with
the name of your kernel configuration file. Then your new Makefile (under
the compile directory) will have this set.

Or consider setting the kern.maxproc sysctl with sysctl(8).

I have questions for others:

Why isn't "maxusers" explained in the config or options documentation?

It should be explained under /usr/share/doc/smm/02.config/ too (but that
is empty). This is "Building 4.4BSD Kernels with Config" (SMM:2).

Where is the documentation for using "maxusers" with three parameters?

I am send-pr'ing this.
