Re: Order of linking libraries

The first thing to say is that this has nothing whatever to do with GNU
make.  For help with linking issues you should contact a group related
to your compiler/linker toolchain; in this case GCC.

Second, if you don't want to mess with special linker flags you can use
the tried and true method of listing the libraries multiple times.  If
libA and libB are mutually referenced, just do something like:

        gcc -o foo -lA -lB -lA -lB

It's remotely possible you'd need to list them more than twice, but I've
never seen a case of this in real life.

Plus this will work with all linkers, just just the GNU linker.
