Better yet, don't run Squid at all. It was designed for a computer
architecture that was already obsolete when Squid was first written.

...actually, maxdsiz is meaningless in FreeBSD 7, because the new
allocator uses mmap(2) instead of brk(2) / sbrk(2), so malloc() counts
towards the resident set size (ulimit -m), not the data segment size
(unless, of course, your application has its own allocator, in which
case you can kiss performance goodbye)
