On NetBSD during installation of mysql-server packages a rc-file from

This exapmple file is bad, because it tries to set the fd-limit to 4096
This fails on "normal" NetBSD systems that has a default limit of 3404.

And so setting 4096 in the rc-file will (silently) fail and the server
will stay at 128 fd's.
Either just set the actual limit to the max with "ulimit -n `ulimit
