I originally had several short prerequisites on the line but discovered that it doesn't matter how you break up the characters (spaces don't seem to have any affect though).

# makefile
define foo
        @echo 'hi'

$(eval $(call foo))

# eof

address@hidden junk]$ make
make: *** virtual memory exhausted.  Stop.

If you remove one character, anywhere on the long line, the error goes away and a normal message results:

make: *** No rule to make target `1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890', needed by `a'. Stop.

(Adding a rule to make the target has no effect.)
