I think it is a quoting bug (there were embedded " inside long desc).
When I replaced them all with ', locally, it seemed to work. What
surprises me is that I didn't really change that part of libasprintf's
setup.hint -- why did it break now, after being fine for two years?
However, Corinna's fix is fine; I'll update my local sources.
