Issue #2480 has been updated by Matt Emmerton.

Looks like we don't need an upstream fix, but rather just an update to a new version.

Bug #2480: /usr/bin/dialog buffer size too small

Author: G. Isenmann
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

Running "make config" in /usr/dports/print/ghostscript9 crashes the dialog program.

Increasing the MAX_LEN value in /usr/src/gnu/lib/libdialog/dialog.h:78 from 2k to 20k "fixes" this issue.

The output size (using the default options in the above example) is about 3.7k.
