This is a problem because automake uses tar with the old v7
format during make dist. The v7 format is limited to 99 chars
per filename.

Use the newer and unlimited POSIX format instead.

NACK. The whole point of using the v7 format is to be more portable to more systems. Rather, we should fix the filenames to be shorter; I'm on that.
