Yes, I considered creating a test case. As far as the _real_ probelems
that I ran into, they were the result of running up close to the
real limits. It would be good to have a test that would exercise it
even if it isn't up near the real limits though.
I'm using Automake, and I've done "make install" on the following
platforms with my too big to compile libraries:
irix 6.5 w/ native compiler
Linux i686smp (redhat 6.2) w/ g++
Tru64 4.0f w/ native compiler
FreeBSD 4.2 w/ g++
HP-UX 10.20 and 11.0 w/ native compilers
AIX 4.3 w/ g++
Linux Sparc (debian) w/ g++
Solaris 5.6 and 7 w/ native compilers
Note that libtool w/ piecewise linking works on all of these,
but the compilers don't necessarily work. ;)
