Yes I remember now, this was the problem with -no_rtti compiling with GCC.
This part of the code with these complex state machines are not that
performance hungry
I will try it with favor_compile_time option tomorrow again but we
give a try already with no success
we were still running out of vector size but we might not setup
correctly the state machines and cpp files.
I will let you know tomorrow.

Thanks for the help and for the hope to avoid big changes in the our
implementation. :).
