I'm guessing here :)
Registration of tests with the runner is done using file-static instances of
some generic factory or other registration mechanism. If none of the symbols
of given object file is referenced outside itself, the linker does not
include the code from the object file in the final executable. Use dynamic
libs, or link the object files instead of the archives.
