Hi Joe,

I had some problems building VirtualBox on a RedHat 3 ES machine,
The "ar" command failed to find an input file -- the message shows a
truncated name compared to what is in the script fed in via -M.

Looking at the source code it appears that the grammar file that
specifies the allowable characters in file names in -M script files is far too
In my case, I was running in an AFS file system and there was an @ in
the path name -- that is not allowd by the grammar.

Please could you create a bugzilla bug report for this problem at:


If you can include a test case to reproduce the problem that will really help.
