kern.* sysctl's are machine-wide, so they affects how the FreeBSD kernel
Virtual Memory model reacts.
For a single process, it is of course the usual getrlimit(2)/setrlimit(2)
calls that is the only pathway. It is usually
set by a call to limit (for csh/tcsh style shells) or ulimit (for
sh/bash/zsh style shells). It is possible to impose specific limits on a
single account via /etc/login.conf (manpage is login.conf(5) and there are a
lot of examples in the /etc file).
Thus, in theory, we could have MLton manipulate the limits within the bounds
set by the sysdmin/kernel via setrlimit(2), but I do not know of any other
program manipulating these parameters directly.
