--- Comment #1 from Philip Hazel <ph10@???> ---
My gcc 9.2.0 does not give this warning with -pedantic, though it does with
-Woverlength-strings. However, I think the string in question has been over
4095 for many years, and nobody has ever complained. Therefore I am indeed
going to close this with "won't fix". (I note that the C11 standard still has a
minimum maximum of 4095, incidentally.) The error messages are provided this
way so that there is only one relocation required instead of many whenever a
shared library is loaded.
