You'll hate it, but:

P1=$(wordlist 1,20,$(A))
P2=$(wordlist 21,40,$(A))
P3=$(wordlist 41,60,$(A))
P4=$(wordlist 61,80,$(A))

splits up $(A) into chunks of 20 words.

No need to use $(filter) if you can live with this.

Intresting, how do I get filter to give me a substring of hundred or so
This would speed up the makefile. What I really need is a way to bypass the
os command line limits. 
Something like XMAKE's $(write) and $(read). I could not get xmake to run,
and the docs are in another language.
