The problem is that ISO C90 only specifies constant defines up to 509
characters. If you pass lots and lots options to configure, it's not hard to
pass that limit. And if you adding strict, pedantic build options to gcc, you
get an error.

I think a solution is to put PBS_CONFIG_ARGS into pbs-config. It's a shell
script so it can go up to 64k or something.
