Folks -

    In creating a, is there a way to tack the <linkflags> on the
front vs. the end? Every time I use this option it appends to the end.

    --whole-archive states :
           For each archive mentioned on the command line *after* the
--whole-archive option, include every object file in the archive in the
link, rather
           than searching the archive for the required object files. This
is normally used to turn an archive file into a shared library, forcing
           object to be included in the resulting shared library. This
option may be used more than once.

           Two notes when using this option from gcc: First, gcc doesn't
know about this option, so you have to use -Wl,-whole-archive. Second,
           forget to use -Wl,-no-whole-archive after your list of
archives, because gcc will add its own list of archives to your link and you
may not
           want this flag to affect those as well.
