Increase command line arguments size limit

Current limitation for Console/Terminal (or Windows Kernel?) is about 10.000 symbols for command line, while *unix shell allow about 32.768 (need be verified).
In some rare cases such length size is not enough, and execution of 10.000+ symbols command fails with an error 'The command line is too long'. E.g. that's why MESA builds for Windows using mingw-w64 are made on Linux and failed on Windows (see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=94072 ).
Would be nice to increase this limitation, so won't be needed to use Linux for tasks, which could be performed on Windows.
