I do not know how reliably this function works, but it seems dangerous
to me, at least.

The function call

    strchr(sources, '\n');

... continues searching until it finds '\n' or it reaches the '\0'
terminator. In other words, 'sources' should be a null-terminated
string.

However, grab_file() just mmaps a file, so 'sources' is not terminated
with null byte. If the file does not contain '\n' at all, strchr() will
go beyond the mmap'ed memory.

Instead, use read_text_file(), which loads the file content into a
malloc'ed buffer, appending null-byte.

Here we are interested only in the first line of *.mod files. Use
get_line() helper to get the first line.
