It's not likely an issue of how OpenJade was compiled; there has been
a limitation in how SGML parsing was configured.  If you poke around
in /usr/share/sgml, you should find some configuration indicating
NAMELEN was set to 44.

I recall hearing that this was an issue in older Red Hat and
derivative distributions, and thought that it was supposed to be
resolved several years ago, but perhaps there's something to undermine
that belief.

At any rate, I'd suggest grepping around for NAMELEN in
/usr/share/sgml; you'll likely see a limitation there, in some SGML
configuration file.
