HPUX 10.10 M15 sources Using GNU rm Shell: tcsh 6.04.00 Running make distclean fails because the command line is too long. I believe that the DIST_GARBAGE variable contains too many */Makefiles. Not sure how that can be fixed.
This should be mine.

Yep, we have a gnu xargs. Now whether or not it will work like you want...
I applied these changes to an hp 11.00 build and it works fine... will now try a 10.20 build... (don't have a 10.10)
I saw that you checked this the diffs... but, I finally got to try this on HP 10.20 and it isn't working, I am still seeing the error "execvp: /bin/sh: Arg list too long" Will continue to look at this.

This latest diff (combined with the earlier one) works on HP10.20. r= firstname.lastname@example.org
Patch has been checked in.
