Description olevole 2012-09-28 11:10:05 UTC
in "restrictions" section of man adduser(8) still isn't reflected information for wtmp accounting db coming in 9.0-release.

"You can change UT_NAMESIZE in <utmp.h> and recompile the world;"
is actual for for FreeBSD <9.0. For FreeBSD 9.0+ correct way is:

#define MAXLOGNAME      17              /* max login name length (incl. NUL) */

in /sys/sys/param.h
