Yes. The VM-limit per process is the main problem for all(?) m68k ports.

I remember we already discussed that years ago on this list, and somebody
(mlelstv?) mentioned that we cannot increase it any further without getting
rid of SunOS emulation, because a huge part of the address space is
reserved for it. But I don't remember the details and couldn't even locate
the responsible source now.

If this is the only reason, and all m68k port maintainers agree, I would
happily sacrifice SunOS emulation support.
