> I can only say I *DO* need very long lines in my batch file,

Two options:

1. Use bash scripts instead of batch files.  Since bash is a djgpp
   program, it can pass long command lines to other djgpp programs.

2. Store the command line arguments in a file, and use the @file
   syntax for the djgpp command:

     find . -type f -print > somefile.txt
     ls -l @somefile.txt
