Locking processes against being killed when low on memory

I'm using NetBSD 4.0 with Xorg, etc. running from flash, i.e. no swap. As it's embedded, everything is running as root. Is there any way to tag processes as unkillable when running out of memory? Some processes (e.g. the X server, management daemon and session manager) need to remain running throughout. I don't mind if other things such as web-browsers get killed. Currently bad things happen when it starts to run out of RAM...
