Not only is it in another directory, it is also not expanded by cpp,
unlike src/Makefile, and thus does not end up in a single line.  Which
means your code will not work at all with lib-src/makefile on w32.  In
fact, if we ever switch away from producing src/Makefile by running
cpp, this new code will break on Posix platforms as well.

What I had in mind for working around possible limitations of
command-line length was to run "make -C ../src echolisp > FILE" and
then read that FILE inside batch-update-autoloads.  The w32 code could
then create FILE in 2 chunks, using its $(lisp1) and $(lisp2)
variables; the rest of the code in batch-update-autoloads could then
work on both Posix and Windows.
