A while ago at work we had a FreeBSD machine compiled with NGROUPS
set to 128 or 256 (Can't remember which).  No problems at all, but
we weren't using it as an NFS server.

The machine in question has since been replaced by a Redhat linux
machine, and we're not allowed to tinker with the kernel - much to
my annoyance ... But I digress :-)
