Jeff,
You could use longtable or supertab and set it one of these multipage
tabular environments. With the array package as well you might even be
able to tell it that the 1st column should be typeset in math mode and
the last as text (or p if you want longer lines), and that there should
always be an equals sign in the middle.
Well, that's the theory, anyway.
