I have a problem with compiling some large program using g++, which
needs more than 32MB of heap memory.

limit tells me that datasize is hard limited to 32MB. And indeed,
sys/arch/atari/include/vmparam.h tells me (32*1024*1024) for MAXDSIZ.

Will there be any problems if I recompile my kernel with
MAXDSIZ changed to -- say (128*1024*1024), as used on the amiga?
