Yes, tried that: because there are sequence dependency on the order of the
object file, one cannot give "foo*.obj", the linker complains lots of
unresolved symbol.

I just wonder if the linker can be changed to be ".obj" order insensitive. Yes,
it's a royal pain to let the user try to figure out the correct ".obj"
sequence, but the linker should have all the information to find the unresolved
symbols in those .objs.

Also tried, when linking with the generated .lib file, it also gives
"Unexpected OPTLINK Termination" error, not sure it's the same one. But I guess
so.
