That means it hasn't identified limit 11 as being associated with
what it thinks -r was previously associated with; because it's now
a generic limit it just blindly adds it without a help string.

Sorry, I don't have access to NetBSD so not only don't I know what the
problem is I don't even know that it *is* a problem --- it's a problem
if someone thinks -N 11 is the same as -r, in which this needs
an appropriate test; or, if -N 11 is new, if that should be associated
with some other option.

Someone who does know NetBSD will have to tell me what needs doing.

In Src/rlimits.c, the only case for handling -r is currently marked as:

	if (head)
	    printf("-r: max rt priority                 ");
# endif /* HAVE_RLIMIT_RTPRIO */

Those definitions come from a set of tests in configure.ac loooking like


which are basically identical for all limits apart from the name ---
they basically look to see if a value for RLIMIT_RTPRIO is defined
in the headers.  The headers are presumably correct as the other limits
are there.
