i've run into this in the past... it's a pointless limitation of the windows command shell.

i worked around it, barely, by editing generated Makefile and converting the FUNCLIST line from this format:

   'FUNCLIST' => [q[SvGChar], q[SvGParamFlags], ... ],

to this format:

   FUNCLIST => [qw(SvGChar SvGParamFlags ...)],

that converts the 5 chars of each "[, q[" to one space, a savings of 4 chars per word, and there are a lot of words there. last time i tried this, that was enough to get that line below the max command line length.

the code that generates this command line is part of the perl build system, and i have not looked into how to fix it correctly.

She's obviously your child. She looks like you, she talks a lot, and most of it is gibberish.
