The easiest way around the problem is this:

VPATH = \$(abspath ..\very-long-build-dir);\$(abspath ..\yet-another-one)

I cannot do that, because very-long-src-dir contains spaces.

What I have done instead is to detect this condition early, and yell at the user to shorten her paths. That's sufficient for my uses.
