Hi folks,

I'm building a pretty huge source code, which builds just fine with MS
compiler and Intel compiler, but Clang ends up with this:

fatal error: error in backend: Section too large, can't encode r_address
(0x1000008) into 24 bits of scattered relocation entry.

If I remove half of it, it starts working fine, so obviously there are some
limitations. This seems to be a well known issue from XCode 4.5, but now
it's XCode 6.2 and it still doesn't work!! Any options I could enable to
make it work? For example on Windows I needed to use /BIGOBJ to make the
compiler work fine.
According to this - https://github.com/bloomberg/bde/issues/113 - some
actions has been taken quite some time ago, yet with the newest XCode
version on newest OSX it still doesn't work. Any ideas?
