Upstream does it that way, but I'm not sure if GNU/kFreeBSD does (I see
no mention of ulimit in /etc?). But if so, it would explain why this
was reproducible on buildd's and not on the asdfasdf porter box.
Raising DFLSIZ seems like the best way to me, as the buildd's will need
it, and some daemons like mysql or postgres seem to want a larger data

You're right, there's still a separate, non-RC bug for that: #598745
Even with 'ulimit -d unlimited', kfreebsd-i386 is bounded by MAXDSIZ =
512 MiB whereas cmor would need ~700ish. I suppose that and DFLDSIZ
could be raised to 1 GiB on kfreebsd-i386 to try to fix this, but no
higher as explained in:
