I've already worked around it (very long, code intensive and
redundant). The problem is that the LIB parameter on the SAVLIB
command doesn't like a character string list.

(From _OS/400 CL Programming V3R6_)

"When variables are used to specify elements in a list, each element
must be declared separately."

This works:
DCL VAR(&LIB1) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10) VALUE('APCUST')
DCL VAR(&LIB2) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10) VALUE('GLCUST')
DCL VAR(&LIB3) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10) VALUE('HRCUST')
SAVLIB LIB(&LIB1 &LIB2 &LIB3)

This doesn't:
DCL VAR(&LIBS) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(20) VALUE('APCUST HRCUST GLCUST')
SAVLIB LIB(&LIBS)

It seems like an odd limitation on the commands or variable
processing, but I worked around it.
