+
+The output of `grep -R PATH_MAX auto-apt-0.3.22/*` is a bit long. It contains files that have been patched using `#define PATH_MAX XYZ`.
+Here is the only file of interest:
+
+ pkgcdb/pkgtab.c: char buf[PATH_MAX];
+ pkgcdb/pkgtab.c: assert(p - pkg < PATH_MAX);
+ pkgcdb/pkgtab.c: static char buf[PATH_MAX];
+ pkgcdb/pkgtab.c: assert(len < PATH_MAX);
