PS  Even with that fix this may still be long.  The full command is:

# See MM_Unix->test
perl -e "
  chdir '%s';  
  system '$(MAKE) test $(MACROSTART)$(PASTHRU)$(MACROEND)' 
      if -f '$(FIRST_MAKEFILE)';

Its a portable way to say "go into that directory and run 'make test' if
there is a Makefile".  I wonder if its counting the tabs between each
PASTHRU key/value pair as one character or eight.
