In this handbook 
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/security-resourcelimits.html page I 

> By default, kernel support for rctl is not built-in, meaning that the

I downloaded the sources of 10.2-RELEASE and I found that thoses options 
are already in the GENERIC config file.

The handbook should be updated because it seems built-in now. To 
activate it kern.racct.enable=1 in /boot/loader.conf is neeeded.

Kind regards
