    xargs already does an implicit `--max-chars=20k'. `--max-files'
    wouldn't help.

    The problem seems to be a very large environment, and the kernel
    complains because it has a limit on total environment and argument
    space.

    The solution is probably to clear the offending environment variable,
    either using `env', `unset' or the makefile itself.
