Cfengine does not allow macros longer than 2048 bytes. I would guess that
if you are n a NAT 192.168 or non-routable segment, that you could
simply grant access to this whole network without difficulty? If not, you
could simply split it into two or more host lists.

$(dirs) $(hostlist1) $(hostlist2)

in fact, since you are not using this list for anything else, you don't
need it to be in a variable at all. Why not just put it in the grant list?
