I once did some tests with structures bigger than 64K elements and tried
different compilers with different experiences.
Compaq C on Alpha works perferctly with compilation times less than 3
GCC (Intel and Sparc) works, but had compilation times around 15
Visual C worked partly (had some obscure bug).
All of these compilers had no internal limits
