Indeed. The day suckless software depends on GNU extensions will be a
sad day indeed. As far as I can tell linking symbols instead of
objects requires unportable flags and unportable binary sections. The
reason being, I'm guessing, that you need to determine a given
symbol's interdependencies at link time, so you have to link objects
(or sections within objects) rather than symbols themselves.
