You mean a special library just containing the main definition for the unit
test framework, right?

I'm not so sure every platform supports that. IIRC some year ago I got
crashes at runtime when building a C++ app when main was linked in through a
static library. I was using (the company formerly known as DEC) C++
6.<something> on OpenVMS Alpha 7.3-1.

As for what the standard says (if it says anything in this matter), I
wouldn't know - sorry.
