I fixed this some time ago by using RLIMIT_DATA which should be defined
everywhere. RLIMIT_AS is also used with systems that have it. It's
mostly useful with Linux/glibc2.3 where RLIMIT_DATA doesn't have much
effect since malloc() uses mmap() for larger allocations.

0.99.5 should be out soon I think :)
