Should automake split long lines? During the sed substitution in
autoconf, the default sed used on Solaris 2.6 and 7 will truncate long
lines in's. I submitted a patch to autoconf to use the
"best" sed available on the system but Paul Eggert brought up the
issue of the invalid use of long lines in

So, should automake change lines like:
  foo_SOURCES = [long list of sources]
to the following in
  foo_SOURCES = $(foo_SOURCES_1) $(foo_SOURCES_2) ...
  foo_SOURCES_1 = [list of sources < 2048 chars]
  foo_SOURCES_2 = [list of sources < 2048 chars]

This doesn't take into consideration substitutions on the RHS but
there's nothing that can be done with that apriori.
