The stack size should be automatically increased.
Doing it portably requires some autoconfing, etc.
OSF aka Digital Unix aka Tru64 has a low stack size (2MB), but MacOS X
has an insanely low stack size (512kb), especially considering there
are no backward compatibility considerations.
just for reference, in case somebody gets around to implementing &
testing this: There were some reports of problems on OpenBSD as well.
I think their default limit is 2MB.
