Problem with ARG_MAX in kfreebsd-kernel-headers


I was about to report this in the BTS but I'm a bit confused about which 
package is responsible. The problem is that in kfreebsd-kernel-headers (=0.22) 
and the kfreebsd-5 source, <sys/syslimits.h> has conflicting definitions of 
ARG_MAX. In kfreebsd-kernel-headers the value is 262144 while in the kernel 
package there is the patch 905_grow_arg_max.diff which raises ARG_MAX to 
131072. Both are pretty high but I know of at least one case where this is a 
kdepim is FTBFS again because when dh_fixperms runs for kdepim-doc it fails 
with "xargs: chown: Argument list too long".

So, this is the problem, but what is the solution? I'm a bit mixed up on which 
source packages are responsible in this case.
