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
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.
I have some swear-words saved up for just such an occasion.
Thanks muppet, I'll give it a go ASAP.
