The "alloc_factor" is indeed obsolete and should have been replaced 
by "relIndexSize". These numbers are easy to obtain:

Select the largest *.inx file (only the .inx and not the .ids structure 
of an index has to be kept in memory during indexing). Assign the size in kb
to attribute "maxIndexSizeKb" of object #library.
Then compare the size of all other indices' .inx file to the largest and add
the "relIndexSize" to the data-fields #field definition - this number must
range between 0 and 1.
