I'm also applying this to the 4.2 branch, since the bug exists there from 4.2.28 through 4.2.31.

Applied to 4.3.x.   Thanks.

POSIX does not require LINE_MAX (if left undefined, it implies that no tool has an inherent maximum line size).  Cygwin does not define it, and as a result, xargs fails to compile out of the box.

Attaching a patch:

        * xargs/xargs.c (main): Don't assume LINE_MAX exists.
