If you put this:

	export ERL_MAX_PORTS=1024

Into this:


Then running this:

	/etc/init.d/couchdb start

Would pick up the value in the first example, and pass it to Erlang.

So as far as I know, the CouchDB daemon is already configurable in the manner you describe.
If the above does not work, then it should, and that is a bug. If you're not wanting to use
the standard init system for CouchDB, then you are on your own in terms of setting up the
correct environment for whatever system you have designed.
