Memory limit in xz (/usr/local/bin/xz)

Since I upgraded that machine from 6.x to 7.3 I am hitting a memory
limit with xz when trying to build/upgrade several ports.

The error message looks like:

  /usr/local/bin/xz: /usr/ports/distfiles//libpng-1.4.1.tar.xz: Memory usage limit reached
  /usr/local/bin/xz: Limit was 46 MiB, but 65 MiB would have been needed

Is there a config parameter to tell the make files in /usr/ports to
desactivate xz memory limit?

Best regards,
