You are mixing up the size of a program which, if you count lots of subsystems
can of course be in this range, with the size of a single compilation which
cannot reasonably be anywhere near in this range.
(for one thing, if there was a single file to be compiled requiring hundreds
of millions of lines to compile, I doubt you would ever see gcc complete
compiling it :-)
