The only way that I know of to work around that is to use the 8+3
alias of the offending file name.  In this case, something like

  OBJS = c:\testdi~1\main.o

should work (be sure to check the actual short name on your disk with
"DIR /X" or its equivalent!).  Ugly, but effective.

Paul, perhaps we should put this trick somewhere in the docs, although
it only works on Windows; GNU and Unix users are out of ``luck''.
