linewrap problem?

User-agent: EMH/1.10.0 SEMI/1.13.7 (Awazu) FLIM/1.13.2 (Kasanui) XEmacs/21.1 (patch 14) (Cuyahoga Valley) (i386--freebsd)

ntp's util/ has a line that looked something like:

 bin_PROGRAMS = @A@ @B@ @C@

and was almost 80 characters long.

automake-1.7.7 (and 1.7.8, apparently) have a problem in that they wrap the
line (adding a \ continuation).

The problem is that if the conditional programs are not being built are at
the end of the line, I'm getting a blank line after the continuation
character, and some "make" programs hate that.

I also notice that bin_PROGRAMS is appearing twice in the, once
as I specifiy it in the, and again (before the PROGRAMS= line)
in an "optimized" form.  If this second line was not emitted I don't think
I'd be seeing this problem.
