           Summary: Can't link on Tru64: argument list too long
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.8.0
          Platform: Alpha
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: cworth at cworth.org
        ReportedBy: jpihlaja at cc.helsinki.fi

Failing make command.

The final linking step when building on Tru64 Unix fails with the error message
/usr/bin/ld: arg list too long.  The command line it's trying to run is about
150kb long and contains a very long list of sonameish numbers.  The failing
command appears to be

test -n "10802.10800.0:2.0:3.0:4.0:5[...snip...]:10801.0:10802.0

I'm attaching the output of make for more context.

So why is libtool doing this for Tru64? Is it merely a broken libtool version,
or a broken shared library system on Tru64 that cairo must workaround? (Which
would necessitate a new major so version...)
