  It's a boot-time tunable.  Look at /boot/defaults/loader.conf and copy
  over the relevant line with a setting such as, for example, 350000
  into your /boot/loader.conf.  Increasing nmbclusters will not help you
  here.  In fact, if you're not running out, I would recommend keeping
  the value reasonable (e.g., 8192).
