Having no life, I respond to myself. Further reseach (flipping through
the books on the shelf) shows rlim_t and rlim_cur to be resource limits.
These are defined in some of the header files in /usr/include and
/usr/include/sys. Sadly, even giving the bind configure command the
flags to find the files, it does not yet work.
