Weird.  I have just had a look t the source file the compiler is
complaining about and it looks pretty standard.

The gles plugin on Linux is not particularly large either. I can't see
any obvious reasons why there would be any need for some special

What size are the object files and resulting osgdb_gles.dll?

Can the option just been added to the gles pugin if absolutely required?

Right now, it seems pretty odd that the gles plugin would break some
compiler limits that we've never hit before in any other module or
plugins, so I'm inclined to think there is something specific going
on, perhaps a bug with the compiler that is throwing things off.
