You are right. 

I just ran:

control:
   split = ( ${n} )
#   packagestohave = ( ReadFile(/var/mln/packagelist,4000) )
  packagestohave = ( csh:tcsh )
shellcommands:
              
   any:: 

   "/usr/bin/apt-get install ${packagestohave}"


-----
 (replacing the readfile with an explicit list) 

and the syntax above worked
