Problem with 'sh' while archiving libc_pic.a

  I have been working on the port of glibc (CVS snapshot) to my MIPS R4400 
based machine running SVR4.2. After a couple of hacks and other twists and 
turns the compilation progresses smoothly until the point where libc_pic.a 
is being generated where things fails citing the following problem:

------------ Clip from the build log --------------------------------------

cd /gnu/glibc/build-libc && /opt/devtools/mips-dde-sysv4.2MP/bin/ar cruv 
c.a `cat csu/stamp.os assert/stamp.os ctype/stamp.os locale/stamp.os

/bin/sh: /opt/devtools/mips-dde-sysv4.2MP/bin/ar: Arg list too long
make[2]: *** [/gnu/glibc/build-libc/libc_pic.a] Error 126
make[2]: Leaving directory `/gnu/glibc/libc/elf'
make[1]: *** [elf/subdir_lib] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/gnu/glibc/libc'
make: *** [all] Error 2


I suspected that this problem could be with 'sh'. On my system 'sh' is 'bash'
like linux systems. using the native 'sh' also did not solve the problem. I 
tried to look into sources of ar. But got no hints in that too. I am able to 
selectively archive the files.

Have anyone faced any such problem ?. Is thre any other workaround ??

Any sort of help will be appreciated.

Thanks and regards
