Perhaps the default limit of 200 is too small nowadays, certainly for
compiling GCC, but you said some lines are tens of thousands of
characters long, is that right?
Yes, I've seen such long lines, 'though not with GCC (it and QT4 take
very long to compile, the latter having also very long lines) but with
X11 related software, particularly such that uses GTK+2 – 20 and more
shared libraries needed, built from 100 or more object files. Although
in column-number-mode the line number is erased, the column counter
still works – and GNU Emacs 23 has the preference to leave the text
cursor at the lines' ends.
Luckily modern shells support command line lengths of 64 K (wide?)
characters, maybe even more, so compiling such monster applications
OK, I'll send that suggestion!
