I'm actually running 1.32 so I haven't hit this, but AIX has a
limit on the size of the command line and environment that is
lower than many *nix'es. That's what you are faced with here.
The perl -e line is exceeding this limit. John and I went back
and forth a few times at the 1.30 release to try to get it
under the limit. Not knowing exactly how far over the limit
you are makes the process a bit difficult. You can try unsetting
environment variables for procmail that may not be needed,
otherwise the only known solution is to break up the offending
line and have a portion read by perl from a file.
