I am attempting to move the Trilinos project from Automake 1.8.2 to 1.10.  I
am having trouble with variables that span multiple lines.  Since some of
the variables that we commonly use can have hundreds of characters, it is
common to use newline characters to break them up.

Makefile:161: *** missing separator.  Stop.


Is there a solution for this problem, other than passing long lines to


Thank you in advance!
