In case anyone runs into this, I'm posting what I ended up doing...

I tracked down a file under include/asterisk/channel.h

This file defines the length of the variables in this section:

/*! Max length of an extension */
#define AST_MAX_CONTEXT 80

Not knowing which one, I changed all three to 255, recompiled, and my hints
work now.  If I were to guess, I would guess that AST_CHANNEL_NAME is the
variable that needs to be changed.  At this point, I've got a relatively
small setup with 2 gigs of ram and over 1 gig free after compiling, so I
don't think I'm taking that big of a hit.
