Re: problems with current squid

It seems like the ./configure for squid incorrectly detects the number
available, it can't find the limit and sets it at the squid ./configure
maximum of 8192.  Something needs to be fixed in the ./configure test
that identifies how many fds are available so that it detects the real
number, or a special case needs to be added to ./configure so that it
won't try to set it to 8192.  -TOm
