To repeat: It's not a setting, it's hardcoded. Changing it won't change programs. You'd just make it lie.

It might be possible to build a custom ksh with a higher setting but that sounds far more difficult(installing compilers, headers, installing things in custom paths) than just getting the newer ksh which already does what you want. What version of ksh are you using? ksh --version
