Background: I am trying to port picoLisp with Alex's help, its written
in assembly for 64 bit architectures and C for 32 bit arches. He is
ported to amd64, ppc64 and sparc64 is on his roadmap.
Can somebody please weigh in on Alex's comment?

I'm surprised to see that OpenBSD uses only 1024 for BUFSIZ, and - even
more - that PIPE_BUF is only 512 (all others so far use 4096 or 5120).
Especially the size of PIPE_BUF is critical for performance, as this is
the limit for atomic messages over pipes, used heavily in PicoLisp's
Does OpenBSD really need to be so much compatible with ancient Unix?
