Thanks Ben; applied with a minor tweak, plus added a regression test.  I decided this could go in under "fair use" because it doesn't modify too many lines so no need for copyright assignment for this.

Philipp Wolski reported that the updated patch also works for the real project he's building.

A better example, which shows that my initial patch was still not correct:

# Both member names > 16 characters long
default: foo.a(looooooooooooong1) foo.a(looooooooooooong2)

(%): %
        ar rU $@ $%

        touch $@

Attaching a new patch that makes this work too.

Philipp Wolski <philipp.wolski@kisters.de> reported in https://bugs.debian.org/904749 that make sometimes fails to see archive members.

A simple example is:

default: foo.a(looooooooooooong)

(%): %
ar rU $@ $%

touch $@

make will always want to remake the archive member because ar_scan() doesn't consider its name to be valid.

I've attached a patch that fixes this example; I will ask Philip to test it as well.
