Isn't the full pathname incuding filename limited (vs. pathname without
Linux has another problem with it's makefiles. They put hundreds of
filenames incl. path in the command line of some tools needed for
compilation. Depending on base path length, that brakes. There are
patches that use xargs to solve the problem but make compilation slower,
so they are not in mainline.
I say, let future RIOT developers deal with that problem. Quote me.
