Me too trying to compile 1700+ classes with jikes. I haven't looked into the
issue very deeply but my feeling is that doJikesCompile should be extended
to check the length of the resulting command line and if it exceeds some limit
to take the same approach as on Windows XX and dump the list of files to
to a file and continue with this as input to the compiler. The problem doesn't 
occur when doing a modern compile (ibm's jdk 1.3 for me).

Have a look at Debian, at least that's what i'm running 8.1.6 on. Basically
every distribution using glibc 2.1 should suffice.

Daddy, what does "format disk c: complete" mean?
Who is General Failure and why is he reading my disk?
