Regarding Petr's plan to actually implement my quickshot idea of
a '--with-scannersize=<number>' autoconf option for cscope, I think
this won't really be necessary.
The same effect can be had by just passing CPPFLAGS='-DYYLMAX=<number>' at
'make' time. I.e., instead of telling users to
./configure <other options> --with-scannersize=<number>
let's tell them to
./configure <other options>
env CPPFLAGS="-DYYLMAX=<number>" ./configure <other options>
The effect is the same, and more easily achieved. The reasons I would
prefer it this way are:
1) It's simpler to do (no risk of breaking anything)
2) It's closer to the spirit of autoconf to leave such details to
'make' times. This is not a platform dependance issue,
