The linker is not complete. Problems are expected.
ok, I think I fixed it for my simple use case. See the attached patch.
It skips the sections in archives that define only new symbols (ie. do
not satisfy any old unresolved symbols).
Still, for stand-alone objects files it links-in all their sections. I
think this will have to do for now...
Take it or leave it. Problems are expected ;)
Space--the final frontier!
