Do you know by how much does the VM increase without SunOS support? If
its significant then I definitely think we should be defaulting to no

It may also make sense to review the default data and other limits on
the system. I know i386 & amd64 keep increasing the defaults, and
while their values may not make sense on an m68k I suspect todays
m68ks defaults should be higher than those from 1992 :)
