excuse me, i have not explained me clearly. i don't try to limit. In
fact it is limited by root but more try to configure pkgsrc/bmake/etc.
not to make too many fork, else i have the above message.
i have a 'ulimit -u 50' made by root, and when i compile, bmake or bmake
readme (at pkgsrc root for example), i get "sh: fork failed - too many
so is there a way to said in mk.conf or anything else that is useless to
try more ?
