The MAXPATHLEN value is supposed to be the maximum length of a string that the
file-handling functions of your OS can accept.  If your OS (or maybe cygwin?)
has it set too small, you should tell those responsible to make it larger.

In the meantime, you can also redefine MAXPATHLEN in config.h so that the whole
app benefits (use #undef before the #define).  Making some buffers use
BIGPATHBUFLEN instead of MAXPATHLEN can cause problems.
