Do you have an URL for this FAQ? I can't find it, and I can't remember
what's wrong with --enable-split-objs. :-( What is the impact for
people using large libraries (like OpenGL/OpenGLRaw/...) where you
often use only a small part? Will you get a huge executable then? IIRC
that's at least the case for Linux.
