When bjam uses the archive command, it assumes that
the length of the command line will be ok.
DOS has a ridiculously small limit, cygwin has
a slightly larger limit and Unix has a much
larger limit. But they all have limits.
My jam is failing due to the limit and the
large number of lengthy filenames I have.

Shouldn't jam use a pipeline for the ar command
in Unix-like environments? This avoids the
command line length limit ever being a problem.
