Trying to run Unbound on FreeBSD 10.1. Following this tutorial:


However that is for 10.0. Don't know if it makes a difference. However I 
did notice that the NSD tutorial I followed made some distinct 
instructions for 10.0 vs. 10.1.

I copied a conf file I had from a previous FreeBSD installation. I believe 
it was 10.0 in that case. However the conf file checks out with 

However when I run either...

unbound-control start


unbound -c /etc/unbound/unbound.conf

...I get:

[1437336832] unbound[69115:0] warning: too many file descriptors requested. The builtin mini-event cannot handle more than 1024. Config for less fds or compile with libevent
[1437336832] unbound[69115:0] warning: continuing with less udp ports: 211
[1437336832] unbound[69115:0] debug: switching log to syslog

Any suggestions? The only discussion I can find about this error suggests 
compiling differently... But now that Unbound is part of the FreeBSD 
standard install, I would not expect to need to (re)compile anything.
