[fpc-pascal] Placing binary data (resources) in object files?

I think I'll use Rainer's example:

{$ir file.dat mydata}

I just hope the final exe won't get bloated if resource are included in
this manner and never used and also that it does slow down compilation
every time unless I add to new resources or change code in the unit
containing the resource.

What I basically have is some large jpgs, test scripts, compressed sound
files and fonts, and I want them built into my library but discarded if no
code references them. That is, if an app doesn't use a skybox (there are no
references to the skybox class), then the default skybox jpeg resource is
not linked into the exe.

1024*1024*6 pixel jpgs
