Sure. The proper way is to avoid long command lines. Unfortunately it
takes some time and work to fsck the source to do it proper. To increase
the max. command line length is a short term solution to get things
going. (And a single simple systune(1M) call is simpler then hacking the
NetBSD build system. ;-) )
