I've built quite a number of packages, firefox-gtk1 was the first one that
hit this. There are many packages that do not build on Interix yet and some that only
build with hacks (eg. sylpheed builds if you comment out the dependencies on gpgme
and metamail which don't build). Given that firefox is available native in Windows
it probably hasn't been tried very often.

It gives an error:
$ ulimit -m
sh: ulimit: -m: unknown option
I'm using default shell in Interix (which is pdksh invoked with -o posix).
