It adressed OS's with command-line limitations in general since until this
patch only Windows got special behaviour.

Current behaviour is that for external compilation a temporary file is used
if the command-line would get longer than 4096 Bytes (which is a limit
defined by POSIX). This may still fail if the Classpath is getting longer
than 4000 Bytes (+ Options + Command + @jikesxxx) but should now work on
most platforms without problems.
