The problem is that gcc doesn't support response files. I don't think
there's much you can do here.
Well, you could think about putting something like
in the g++ command-line. But this is a hack that I wouldn't want to
try. What are you trying to accomplish? Linux doesn't have a
command-line length limitation, which is the reason you normally need
response files under Windows.
