Hello, I think GCC is the compiler targeted to bigger systems where no problem with memory limit exist.
(there are very similar difference between ELKS and real Linux kernel, ELKS designed with 64kb limit in mind.) We could consider to use SDCC instead, btw from now on SDCC support "named address space"
http://sdcc.sourceforge.net/doc/sdccman.html/node64.html
this feature potentially may add multi data segments executables to ELKS.
Also, It seems to me that all those systems supported by SDCC are very similar to 8088 computer because of their 64kb address space limit.

thanks,

Andrey
