Raising temperature threshold

I`ve installed a FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE and I was building some ports when
suddenly my system shut down. Upon rebooting it and checking
/var/log/messages, I found the following lines:
Jun 21 16:01:30 bell root: WARNING: system temperature too high,
shutting down soon!
Jun 21 16:01:40 bell kernel: acpi_tz0: WARNING - current temperature
(60.0C) exceeds safe limits
Then I realized what had happened. My acpi_thermal sysctl's are:
hw.acpi.thermal.tz0._ACx: 50.0C -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1
When I try to raise hw.acpi.thermal.tz0._CRT to 85C (which is the threshold in
the BIOS setup) it doesn't work:
bell# sysctl hw.acpi.thermal.tz0._CRT=3580 # 3580 tenths of Kelvin=85C
sysctl: oid 'hw.acpi.thermal.tz0._CRT' is read only
I've tried /etc/sysctl.conf as well, but I get the same error.
Now, my question is: how do I change this value? I've read several manpages
(acpi(4), acpi_thermal(4), acpiconf(8), and many others) and checked the
handbook, to no avail. Can anyone point me to the right direction?
Thanks a lot,
